What happens in the show?

After a teacher has a nervous breakdown, a troll takes over a school and everyone is too frightened to stop the troll having its own way apart from the twins, Holly and Sean.

Describe the show in five words

Story time reading with actions.

Who was your favourite character and why? 

Holly because she was a mischievous girl. 

Were there any characters you didn’t like? 

All the adult characters because they didn't bother to do anything about the troll but I think an adult would do something. 

What did you like most about the show? 

The light effects did make you imagine the troll. 

What didn’t you like about the show?

It was too long for the story so it was like bits of the story were being repeated.

Would you tell your friends to come?

Probably not because although the acting and lighting was good at making you create a troll in your imagination, it would have been better if there had been someone dressed up as a scary troll. The story was too long for younger children and it felt like older children would have seen something like it before. 

What did your grown-up think of the show? 

My dad is 34 and he thought it was written how adults see children but I suppose it was written by an adult.
