"The show itself was great. The actors, producers, behind the scenes did a fantastic job. My 5-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself. My only complaint is out ticket from Quicket shows start time as 10:30 not 10AM so when we got there at 10:20AM we had missed the first 2 scenes. That was not cool!"
