Our two grandchildren aged 10 and 8 thoroughly enjoyed the Railway Children with us. The thrill of seeing a large steam engine coming into the middle of the theatre was wonderful. We would recommend this as splendid family entertainment.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Very clever set design to create scene changes. Also liked the way the actors came on and mingled with the audience before the show started.

Our family loved it. In retrospect I would have encouraged our daughter to watch the film first - as she didn't always understand the storyline from the play alone (she's 8). That said - a little commentary from me carried her along and she loved the live acting.

This is a beloved story in our family come to life. We would have gladly come to see this production over and over if we could. The actors/actresses were fantastic. The train and stage drew us right in to another time and place. We have returned Alaska and our boys are still raving about The Railway Children!!

This was a brilliant performance would go again tomorrow to see it all again. The setting was perfect enhancing it even more. Well done I'd give it 10 stars if I could
