What a talented troupe! Amazed and inspired at the innovation and creativity of this presentation. They packed a lot of historical information into a constantly moving, always entertaining show that never became dry or uninteresting. Each actor took on dozens of different personalities effortlessly (at least it seemed that way) and always kept the audience engaged. Looking forward to their... More

I have read many of the reviews and they all said it all - this is an outstandingly talented group of young people who clearly love what they do, and do a super job! (Hannah's expressions are hilarious). What a fun way to see Sir John - don't miss it!

These players have talent. Their original witty take on our first prime minister resonates with the audience. If you like clever dialogue, catchy songs, quick change presentation in the tradition of street theatre, make sure you see this.
