the production was perfect for young children as the more frightening elements were handled in a way that conveyed the idea of foreboding but was not terrifying. i enjoyed it with my 6 yr. old granddaughter.

The singing and acting was superb. My 9 year old grand daughter was on the edge of her seat, totally immersed in the emotions of the characters.
