NOMINATED FOR OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST FAMILY AND ENTERTAINMENT SHOW 2016

"A mischievous, boisterous, delight of a show..."  The Guardian ****

"Are you a parent of small children? A godparent to small children? Were you once a small child yourself? Whatever your excuse for seeing this chortlingly visual, parpingly musical show, don't hang about.  It's a joy."  The Times ****

"Both Webb and Larwood are inspired choices.  They're a classic combo: rich man and thief, king and court jester – and their costumes, fur-coat and coxcomb, add a subtle political layer. It's a morality play, really, and as the bear sits alone with his actions, contemplating his guilt, the seasons start to change. Autumn leaves drift down. Snow starts to fall. I want to go back."  whatsonstage ****
