I had no idea what to expect when my mother saw a leaflet and bought me, my sister and all our kids a ticket to the show. The kids were aged 1-11 and they all loved it and didn't want to get up and run about they were so entertained! Great dancing, acting, humour and energy and I enjoyed it so much I am all ready looking forward to next yr!
Excellent show, very interactive with the younger children (and adults) joining in with the shouting! Really enjoyable. Highly recommended. 🙂
Pinocchio was fantastic with a dedicated cast and crew!! Our grandchildren age 5 loved Pinocchio and were out of their seats shouting at Freddy Foulfellow and trying to help Pinocchio to do the right thing and go the right way!It .The performance was full of energy!Well done all!!Nice touch being served popcorn by ' The Toymaker'
This is our second Christmas attending the Hard Graft performance this year's Pinocchio was fantastic with a dedicated cast and crew!My son who is 5 was out of his seat shouting at Freddy Foulfellow and trying to help Pinocchio to do the right thing and go the right way!It always feels cosy, as if you are part of the story!The performance was full of energy!Well done all!!Can't wait for next year already!
After visiting Pinocchio with my reception children I just had to book tickets for myself and daughter and she loved it just as much as I did from the jokes to getting squirted at and then little touches like sweets from Santa at the end of the show this pantomime is defiantly a must see the cast were lovely interacting with the children before the show and throughout I will be looking out for more productions !
Pinocchio, as presented by Hard Graft was great fun to watch. All the performers were magnificent; the script was funny and told the story well. We are a group of Adults with Additional needs, we enjoy trips to the cinema and theatre and are very discerning. We loved Pinocchio. Connie and the talking snowman were a highlight! You have to see it for yourselves.Thankyou Mark - we look forward to seeing other Hard Graft productions.
I am a childminder and have been attending these yearly shows for the last 3 years with children aged 9 months -4 yrs old. Every year it gets better and better and love the venue at oldham library its small and compact, children are close to the stage and can see everything. Mark and his performers get everyone involved and the kids love it Father Christmas is an added bonus.Well Done again
Took my two year old son to his first Christmas show, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was presented clearly and was easy to follow, with fun performances from all involved. Lots of audience participation, songs, dancing and clapping along. I have to add that I enjoyed the show as well! We'll definitely be back for further productions!
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Hard Graft's production of Pinocchio this festive season. Fantastic story telling and wonderfully performed musical pieces too. It has everything a young child could want: big characters, songs, dances, puppetry, magic, slapstick comedy and best of all - a happy ending. Well done to all involved.
I took my two boys to see the show and loved it. A lovely performance, well done; will definitely book again.
