What happens in the show?

Three girls go on safari.

Describe the show in five words

Funny, fun, weird, acrobatic, fantastic.

Who was your favourite character and why?

They were all girls. I liked them all but my big sister, Ella, can do some of the acrobatics better. I can do the aerial things...when I'm on a swing.

Were there any characters you didn’t like?


What did you like most about the show?

The silly string!

What didn’t you like about the show?

I know how the trick with the red light on the finger works but I still enjoyed it.

If there were songs or music in the show, what did you think of it/them?

I wanted there to be real drums at the beginning. I like the song 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'.

What did your grown-up think of the show?

I don't know what Ben thinks. I covered him in silly string.

Would you tell your friends to come and see the show?

Yes, it was fantastic.
