"Just wanted to say a big thank you for last Monday and for all the work you put into coming into our school to work with the kids. The kids absolutely adored the day and I reckon it will stay with them for many years to come. You made them all feel so welcome and so much a part of everything – they have not stopped talking about it since."

"Just wanted to say thanks for yesterday and what a brilliant experience it was for our boys.

It all went very smoothly and thanks for giving them that extra opportunity at the start."

"just dropping a line to say a big thank you for all your hard work and
effort in making today a fantastic experience for all our students. It is
a day that I know they will look back on and cherish. We arrived back at
College at around 8.45pm with many of the students still texting their
friends telling them of today's encounters and still singing!!"



The Snow Queen
The Stables, Wavendon, Milton Keynes
Christmas 2007

" It's a pacy production, switching easily from narrative to action, comedy, to comedy and tense drama .....If you want a big, brash, blousy commercial Christmas panto then head to Milton Keynes Theatre.  But if you want something a little more imaginative and subtle then the Snow Queen wins hands down."   Leighton Buzzard Advertiser
