I’m sorry to leave a bad review because the story was actually quite good. What spoiled it was the awful high pitched screaming voices all the way through. The actresses really need to tone it down as when I left there were several comments by other people leaving that their ears hurt. By the end I wish I’d been eaten by a shark rather than spent a lot of money leaving with a headache!

This is a brilliant adaptation of three Shark in the Park books, the cast really do bring the characters to life - their performance, and costumes are equally great - and plenty of laughs for the grown-ups too. Our two-and-a-half year old loved it, he was transfixed by the action, clapped and shouted along and we had a fab time too. Highly recommended.

"This show is exceptional as it has a perfect mix of song, dance, humour and variation. It is an absolutely classic story and this production is a mixture of all three books on the stage."
