Riverside school's review of 'All Things Weird and Wonderful' 2014:

Mrs Morris: ''Very, very clever … entertaining, educational, interactive, funny, serious … an All-Join-In-Adventure indeed! The whole show was beautifully crafted with a clear structure and purpose which allowed the artists to respond to any and every suggestion and then take the stories in whatever direction the children wanted. The artists’ management of the audience was faultless … lots of potential for over-excitement with a show like this, but the balance between joining in energetically and looking and listening attentively was perfect. Well done Mud Pie Arts and thank you from Year 7 at Riverside Special School, Goole!''


'What an excellent production!! Perfectly pitched, propped and performed for our lively year two classes. Just the right quantities of watching and audience participation. Children and staff had a great time - Thanks!!'

ps. we also loved how much the performance encouraged imagination, creativity and great language for future creative writing and drama.'

'Fantastic session, thought-provoking dealing with difficult subject matter in a considerate and understanding way. Conducted in a safe environment. Fully recommended!'

Performance Workshop - Blue Eyes Brown Eyes KS2

'Everyone's ideas are cleverly incorporated and everyone is invited up on stage at different times, The benefit of allowing the children to act out their story takes the show to a much higher level of engagement and wonder than a more passive show. I can't wait for the next one.' The Three Sillies.
Liz Somers, Crayke C of E Primary School PTA

'A super Live Arts session which captivated the children. It allowed the children to let their imaginations run wild, with fantastic results. The set and props were first class too. Thank you very much'.

N. Such, Scarcroft Primary School
Performance Workshop - The Legend of the Jumblies KS1

'It was lovely how you interacted with every single child.'

'I thought it was brilliant from Sophie Age 6.'
