Press Quotes

'Two tales for the price of one as the brilliant Christmas show specialist Stuart Paterson weaves the story of the princess and the frog into the dream-world of Sleeping Beauty'

Sunday Times

'This fantastically embroidered variation on the original is classic Stuart Paterson territory. Here is a deep understanding of the old stories, here is the battle between the queens of darkness and light, here is the robust and less than goody-goody heroine, here the wide-eyed, big-hearted boy, here the insight into the real world of children'
