Wow-wow!! Watched on 31 May. The best show yet and from the little ones in the chorus to the main characters it was first class entertainment. A special mention for Fat Sam and Tallulah who immersed themselves in to their roles and fantastic singing from Tallulah! Will go back again in the Summer for a second visit to see this show. Congratulations to all involved.

One of the family’s all time favourite films and when we saw it was on we had to visit. We weren’t disappointed. The kids were brilliant, there was a nice twist in the show to the film, the choreography was superb and it was a fabulous evening. Well worth a visit to support this outstanding troupe.

Wow, what can we say that hasn't already been said! We recently watch the production of Mary Poppins and it was simply amazing. We watched the show with our two young kids who were mesmerised throughout and then became a bit starry eyed when they got to meet Mary Poppins outside the theatre afterwards with the rest of the cast. The quality of the show was (as always) very high, the singing was spectacular and it makes it all the special that this is a youth theatre group, which equals and surpasses most other theatre companies. Though the average age of the cast members will be lower than other more adult theatre groups don't let this put you into a false sense that this is an amateur theatre company. The quality of the KRU productions are consistently high, very engaging and always a smash hit. In addition, the purchase of the new digital background stage screens adds to the clarity of the theatre experience. Highly recommended.
