“The Evie the Christmas Elf show was wonderful and Karli was amazing! The children had the best time and Karli was so kind and caring to each one of them - she has the skill of listening to children's comments but also keeping the show moving. Also the timing was perfect for the intervals of sitting still then moving and dancing.
Thank you! I will definitely book some shows for next year.
Merry Christmas Therase and staff!” Kathryn director Albert Hall Preschool Freshwater Dec 2020

The content and delivery of the show was so appropriate and engaging for the range of children who attended, from as young as 18mths to 8 years. They seemed to enjoy it even the adults! There was a great mix of performance styles: music, dance, mystery, questioning audience, comedy which appealed to a mixed group. The children really enjoyed the show! I was surprised that they engaged for the whole 45 minutes especially the younger children!''
