"Simple, engaging and interactive production that makes for the best kind of children's theatre"
The Stage

"It's always nice, as a reviewer and theatre fan, to step back occasionally and see something a bit different, and that is what this is, so take your kids, grandkids, your granny, uncles and aunts because they will all love this production." Kev Castle Theatre Reviews Blog

"With an easy to follow story and fantastic use of props, songs, dancing and jokes; the hour seemed to fly by and after it was over I realised I had been smiling the whole way through it" Derby Days Out, Mum Natalie

"Touring company New Perspectives brings John Vernon Lord's classic family favourite to life with ingenious creativity and modern twists, thrilling packed audiences during a sell-out run in Wimbledon" Love Wimbledon

"What a great show! Packed with good humour it was the perfect family entertainment, ideal for toddlers up to us big kids! I would absolutely recomment this show to other families with children aged 3 - 10 years old." Derby Days Out, Dad Adam

"The Giant Jam Sandwich is an accomplished musical, the narrative kept moving by the tunes and whole conversations happening in harmony. New Perspectives' play about a plague of winged pests is sure to garner some buzz." Children's Theatre Reviews

"I liked all of it but my favourite part was when the first loaf came out - I won't spoil it but it was funny!" Derby Days Out, Daughter Lola
