"Today I had the pleasure of seeing @AWAPrd create a mesmerising version of The Wizard of OZ @SoundbiteFest A superb cast of six actors who perfectly captured the children’s (of all ages) imaginations. If you ever get a chance to see any future shows then I thoroughly recommend."
"Thanks, Halie and George, and to the rest of the cast for a very successful afternoon. It was just great to see both performances packed out. We’d be delighted to have you back next year."
