The story was lovely and relevant to kids and adults alike. The actors were awesome (--super thank you for coming out after the production and wishing a Happy Birthday to our grandson). The theatre was lovely, and the theatre staff were friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a wonderful experience for us and for our six year old grandson. Thank you to the Smeds and Smoos production family!
