Wow! This show was simply beautiful, and the desire to now adopt a Cloud Man of my own is overpowering. The simple manner of the storytelling is so effective, the actress/puppeteer had the children and the adults in the audience hanging on every word she said and every action she performed. The children were delighted with the clue following and search for Cloud Man, and there were gasps of delight with every item found. This was fantastic honest storytelling which everyone enjoyed and set on a fabulous set, clouds will never be the same for my 6 year old! I would have no hesitation whatsoever recomending this to audiences of all ages who enjoy a nice heartwarming tale. It is also a lovely venue to visit with oppurtunity to have lunch or coffee and even when queueing to access the theatre there are activities for the children to partake in. This really is a must see show.
