This show was EXACTLY what I was looking for for my 7 and 10 year olds. A comedy play that wasn’t magic, science, maths or Shakespeare. No offence but most shows for this age group are scarce and all rather samey.

We LOVED it. The ending was a little twee but the show was really good fun and totally different to everything else we had seen. It brings back memories of songs from my childhood that the kids had also heard of too, and who wouldn’t want a marshmallow to take away at the end?

Great stuff ladies!!

A very entertaining and energetic show, which anyone who has experienced Scout/Guide camp will enjoy. My 10 year old daughter (just back from guide camp and knew most of the songs) enjoyed it very much. A story about friendship with a few jokes about poo.

I am 9 years old and really enjoyed your show. I loved the brilliant singing. And enjoyed the clapping and stamping we had to do. I found your show very funny and I would recommend your show to other people and hope they think the same as me. Your show was funny, silly and much more. I would tell my friends about this.

Had great fun on a very wet day. The cast was full of enthusiasm and energy. The children in the audience were completely engaged. Would thoroughly recommend the show.

3⭐ Great energy in this production which kept the kids entertained and they seemed to enjoy it. Thought the story was a little weak and overall a little less polished than some shows I've seen. Still worth watching!

Alex Williams 130 days ago

These girls are a class act. Zany fun, more scouting memes and tunes than there are badges on a girl scouts sash, with a delightful twist in the tail!
