Verne Sanderson - Medway theatres producer

That was a masterclass in entertainment. Brilliant show. Never seen my autistic son so engaged. Thank you. I now know what Ferris Bueller did after school – he became you!! This was the greatest show I’ve ever seen! I have been waiting to see The Giant Balloon Show for ages, and it didn't disappoint! What an entertainer. Very entertaining for both children and adults. Brilliant Never laughed so much, My jaw still aches!
