"I was quite enchanted. The best theatre transcends age and has a universal quality. l think for me as an older person it transported me back to something l feel l have lost .....the innocence of childhood! It was lovely to reconnect with it again. It reminded me a little of Shaun Tans book "The Lost Thing" which l was recently able to share with my grandson Jack who is five. I know Jack would have been as captivated as me, by The Lost Balloon and look forward to one day taking him to see the finished production.
Great masks and beautiful music."

"It was gorgeous! Patrick (the five year old) was talking about the show the next day and thought the child chasing the balloon was hilarious. He was telling his kindy teacher all about the child climbing a pole and the balloon that kept getting away. I thought it was very sweet – how the child interacted with all the different characters and how the balloon seemed to have a personality.You’ve got a great team working on the show!"
"Just wanted to say a HUGE congrats. What a lovely, beautiful piece of work you have created, particularly over this last 4 week period. I thought it was just gorgeous and the artistry of all the performers was brilliant. We have nothing like this on our stages, so I sincerely hope this work keeps going and thousands and thousands of people and little people get to experience this show."
