Reviews

We loved the performance! The kids laughed the entire performance, as did the adults. As a reading school we truly appreciated the focus on books. North Otter Elementary, Langley
We just watched the Monster Theatre presentation. The staff and students thoroughly enjoyed the program! The acting and singing was excellent as was the humour and comedy which was presented to us. We would welcome them back to our school again. Collingwood Neighbourhood School
We all loved the performance by Monster Theatre. The actors were so engaging and personable. One teacher said she was laughing so much that she almost fell off her chair. The teachers were impressed with the different levels of jokes and humour. The actors were tremendoud and the kids were interested the whole time. Hazelgrove Elementary, Surrey
