Another great show from Zoonation. As always quality music, singing and dancing.

Elizabeth Tinley18th September

Such a shame that the show was cancelled, but the ‘concert style’ performance gave an indication of what a great show this could be. Disappointed with the chaotic way the announcement and delay to the start was handled which meant that we had to leave at the interval and missed the rest of the performance.

Victoria Edwards16th September

Brilliant performance and fantastic songs - really hoping the soundtrack becomes available!

Caroline Gutteridge16th September

This production was outstanding - cast were all amazing and incredibly talented - very very enjoyable and a great way to teach children history in a modern form - I only didn't give 5 stars as thought the production was slightly too long in performance time - especially with the evening show and people needing to get last trains etc - it probably could have ended 20 minutes earlier.

Liam15th September

Incredible cast. So much energy and the music was outstanding.

Janet Olliver14th September

Fabulous show full of energy and fun. Great dancing and singing.

Karen Pitt13th September

Purchasing of our tickets for Sylvia at The Old Vic was really quick and easy via Theatre London Direct. The show was incredible. Great performance, great cast making the time go quickly as the production is quite long (2 half’s of c. 1.5 hours each).

Stephen Crouch9th September

The first half was a bit long , could drop 1 or 2 of the weaker songs. It wasn't what I expected I thought it was more like an opera than a musical. The talent on stage was very clear to see.

Michelle Edwards9th September

It was a very good show. Only didn't get to see how it ended due to a health and safety issue. But the stand in lead was outstandingly. Maybe the paying customers should have been offered another free ticket to see the ending another day

Due to the well publicised hiccups surrounding this production I can’t say that I wasn’t disappointed as I paid £35x2 for a complete performance however, I still have to admit that the show was enjoyable and has potential.
