What a fantastic production! This 60-minute performance is well worth watching and ideal for all the family. My daughter and I were entertained throughout the entire show with audience participation and light-hearted humour which had adults and children alike giggling in their seats. Puppetry & songs were also a very clever way to bring this story alive.

There were no programmes or books for sale so the only spare cash you need is for refreshments.

The storyline was easy to follow with Mr & Mrs. Chickweed’s prize vegetables taking over their lives and despite Mr. Chickweed’s dream to travel and explore the world, Mrs. Chickweed has other ideas and persuades her husband to plant for another season...unaware of the impact the enormous turnip would have on their lives. This performance left me with a big smile on my face and continued outside the theatre after the show.... you will need to see it to see what happens next!
