What’s On Stage, Birmingham 5/5

'A well-directed, and well executed engaging piece of seasonal family fun.'

ReviewsGate 4/5

‘All the children loved it and were captivated by the very clever set and actors from the beginning to the end as the story took you high above the clouds and over the sea. 

I can't recommend the show enough, another first class co -production between  Mac and Pins & Needles Productions.’


‘There are funny and tender moments throughout and everyone was drawn into the tale.’


‘It’s top marks from us – the production, actors and storyline left us feeling ridiculously Christmassy and we were sure to pick up a programme on the way out to start planning what other productions we’ll be going to see in 2019.’


‘This production is a real treat for all the family and comes highly recommended by us. ‘

Family Fun in Brum

‘we were treated to masterful puppetry, clever scenery, props and costumes, and a Christmas Eve tale to get us in the mood for the forthcoming festive season.’ 

Capable Child

'Directed by Anna Girvan, there are also some really lovely moments.'

Weekend Notes

'The cast were great, full of energy and interacted well with their audience, the school children all had huge smiles on their faces.'

Small House Big Trips

'It’s a lovely story with a fab cast, clever set design and a happy ending to leave you feeling full of Christmas spirit.'


'The performance of Rudolf was the perfect way to kick start our festive season. The story was heart warming and funny for all ages.' 


'This is a great show to see with your kids and has a really good feel factor to it. The theatre was small which gave it that real personal feel to it.'
