The Little Things are complete professionals. Working with them over numerous years with Valley Fest, I have always found the group delightful; from production/communications through to performance and follow-ups, TLT bring a huge amount to everything they do. Dealing with the difficulties of this year, the festival programme and remote working, TLT were always positive, supportive and flexible as needed.
Then came the show. The festival tent was at the maximum for Covid safety and people craned to see from outside as TLT brought a beautiful koala teddy to life and touched everyone with a wordless, emotionally loud experience. I’m already looking forward to working with them again!Chris Beale & Beth Calverly
Lovely use of props, set and costume – exposing the magic and mechanics of theatre. Enjoyed the sweet story and parrallel of jokes. We thought it was lovely – addressing some of the different experiences and emotions children felt during lockdown.
Well done for getting the show together – very impressive and so lovely to be watching live performance again after almost a year. I know it must have been a real effort to put together and a gamble. Well done and thank you!Audience Member
The Little Things were great to work with – really responsive and happy to adapt their show to suit the space, which is important for festivals. They were prompt communicators and their performance attracted a busy audience as the concept was fun, playful and perfectly pitched for this family-friendly event. Everyone loved the insect theme!
Parents and children alike were captivated by the characters. The costumes, props and storytelling were designed to keep the audience’s attention from start to finish. The tent was packed, and audience members were completely hooked. Everyone loved taking part in helping to create the story, with plenty of laughter and silliness to complement the underlying message.
The immersive, interactive nature of this play made it perfect for our stage, and it was pitched so that very small children could enjoy it along slightly older children. I would say it was the highlight of our family-friendly storytelling programme!Beth Calverly
