✭✭✭✭✩ Family fun
Young critics scheme review:
Educational, side-splitting and with just the right amount of ridiculous, Shakespeare in the Garden – Cheer Up, Hamlet is perfect for parents who want their children to be discreetly educated but without their enjoyment being compromised.

✭✭✭✩✩ Emotional rollercoaster
Young critic scheme review:
Creative, absorbing, and very wacky, the Finnish Ryhmateatteri Ensemble’s version of Arto Paasilinna’s popular book, originally published in 1975, certainly leaves an impact.

Young critics scheme review:
Colourful, comical, and unashamedly camp, MGA’s production of Zanna, Don’t is a credit to the work of the original writer of the musical, Tim Acito.
