Every now and again this happens and it blows me away.
As you may know Oldham is a poor town and many parents can't afford theatre.
From a teacher.
"I'd just like to say how much the children from Mather Street Primary School and Yew Tree Community School enjoyed your performance of Pinocchio this morning. It was lovely to be able to take our children to see live theatre, something which most of them won't have had the opportunity to do before. The setting was great, and with it only being small was perfect for our children, as they were all really close to the action. They loved every minute of it, and the talk amongst the children on the bus on the way home was "shall we go there again?"!!
Thanks once again, and we look forward to attending future performances."
And from social media...
Just been to watch Pinocchio with families from Alexandra children's centre and we had an amazing time! The show was brilliant, funny and entertaining and the dancers were outstanding. I would recommend a trip to this show to put you in the Christmas spirit.
What a fabulous performance!If you want to be amazed...and amused,come and watch Pinocchio...Watching the show today made my Christmas that little more extra special.The performers are all so talented.Well done to all of you.Such a special treat just before Christmas...The "mise en scene" is so cleverly done...
Absolutely loved 'Pinocchio' today! Fantastic show. I always look forward to seeing your productions.
