What happens in the show?
It was acted by a man who only says one word at the end of the show. He mimes the rest. He finds some sticks. They talk to him in a special language. He becomes friends with one of he sticks but then it breaks. That was sad but it all ends happily!
 
Describe the show in five words
Dramatic, sweet, sad, funny, curious.
 
Who was your favourite character?
The big stick that looked like a carrot!

What did you like most about the show?
The ending. I was happy for him. It was sweet. Also the beginning was fun!

What was your favourite moment in the show?
When the lights came on and the main character walked out to explore and play. 
 
What did your grown-up think of the show?
My daddy enjoyed it and found the facial expressions and acting really fun. 
 
Would you tell your friends to come and see the show?
Yes. But only my age and older. There were some bits I didn't quite understand.
