" Garance Marneur's set of bleached winter trees and wonderful costumes were amazing; with innovative projections that flooded the set with huge snowflakes and then the iridescent shifting blue of darkness- gaspingly good! "

THE NORTHERN ECHO

" A thing of wonder, infused with candy-striped trees, levitating cabinets and glowing constellations of bulbs. "

THE GUARDIAN

" A hugely stylistic silvery white forest greets the audience as they enter the auditorium; shadowy shapes drift in and around the 'trees'. The darkest of woods... a time machine, a translucent box, reminiscent of Dr Who... and wonderful costume added much needed colour and humour which the children and adults loved. [...] There are some dramatic effects- a bit of climbing and some neat projections. One youngster was heard to describe the show as 'epic'. "

THE PUBLIC REVIEWS

" In the universe of Garance Marneur's's Maplins-punk costume design, that spirit of uncompromising, unpatronising space fantasy is everywhere. [...] The spectacle of Marneur's sylvan set design. [...] There is genuine magic. "

EXEUNT MAGAZINE

" A visual treat in creating a world where the high tech gadgetry is employed to save books and stories for our 'happily ever after'. The creativity of the production is very multimedia. The central ramp that brings the action from the stage into the audience is well used throughout the evening and the suspended bulbs around the stage and auditorium make the space feel magical. I had to ask a young member of the audience for their feedback on the show. The response was an enthusiastic 'EPIC!', which in my opinion is just what a story should be! "

REVIEWS

" The children were transfixed "
