What happens in the show?
We made an orchestra with instruments. We played lots of music and thought about how we make music. I loved it! 

Describe the show in five words
Musical, fun, friendly, dancing, animals. 

Who was your favourite character, and why?
The conductor. He was fun. He let us conduct ourselves.  

Were there any characters you didn’t like, and why?
Just one. He played a double bass which was loud and bigger than me. I didn’t like that so much.

What did you like most about the show?
Playing the instruments. I played a horn.

If there was something the performers could have done better next time, what would it be?
They only had instruments with bows. I would have liked to play some drums. 

What was your favourite moment in the show?
When they played loud music. I liked that. 

What did your grown-up think of the show?
She enjoyed it as much as me.
Would you tell your friends to come and see the show?
Definitely! It was a lot of fun.
