I would suggest to bring a bottle of water and small snake for the intermission.

A lot of facially animated running around on stage. As an adult, I was a bit bored, but my 5 year old granddaughter, who didn't know the story & the many other children present, who had come to see this play with parents, grandparents, etc. all...continued

Excellent show! Well done. Great for families, especially those with school-aged children. An hour long, a bit short, I guess this is due to the fact that these shows are catered to children. Will continue to support CTC.

Took my 5 year old girl. She absolutely loved it. The story was adapted very well to entertain kids and I certainly laughed out aloud too. A great way to keep your lil' one enterntained.
