"On behalf of the children and staff may I thank you once again for your wonderful production. You seemed to use every possible type of puppet and theatrical device to create a fast moving and polished performance. The children remained enthralled throughout!" Thongsley infant school, Huntingdon

"Childrens theatre of the highest quality, a splendid piece of theatre. Imagination and invention are the main attributes of this enchanting tale, that keeps all ages attentive and well entertained. The Banyan Theatre Company is well versed in folklore to give the narritive a rich and magical texture, and Joy Haynes and Karen Torley prove themselves to be more than competent narrators, puppet handlers and performers. Banyan proves itself again to be one of the top storytelling companies in theatre today!" Leicester Mercury.

"This is the fourth show by the company that I have seen and to my mind each production has been better than the last, and even the first set a high standard of originality, live performance and puppet operation, and visual invention, all of which have gone from strength to strength... Banyan's Little Red Cap is designed for children, but if you, an adult, ever wonderdered why you were fascinated by the art of puppetry, go and see it, and you will be well reminded." Penny Francis Animations
