Excellent venue (February 2022 - Secondary School)




The children enjoyed their first experience at the theatre and the theatre even accommodated when we were late arriving by starting the performance a little later. (January 2022 - Primary School)




Organisation to seats was tricky, and more staff needed to be on hand to direct schools to their seats. Needed designated school areas to line up ready to take back to the coach. (December 2019 - Primary School)




Friendly staff, helpful with organization and locating facilities, such as toilets. (December 2019 - Primary School)

Rep theatre show - fantastic example and experience for the children. (April 2019 - Primary School)




The Rep were very helping with our queries before the performance, and helpful when it came to finding somewhere to sit with a class of children. They were able to put our minds at rest with regards to our child visiting with a medical need (diabetes.) (March 2019 - Primary School)

(January 2019 - Primary School)




The group was secondary aged students from a special school who all have complex and multiple additional needs. The pre-visit information and communication received from The Rep was fantastic - in particular the social story. On the day, we were made to feel welcome by all staff we encountered and nothing was too much trouble - very accommodating, and it was made clear that during the relaxed performance the students needs could be met eg leaving for some quiet time/time out, noise etc without judgement. The children loved the meet and greet with some of the cast in their costumes at the end, and once again our group was made to feel a part of the whole experience. Would highly recommend a relaxed performance to anyone visiting with our kind of group - a brilliant day! (January 2019 - Secondary School)




(December 2018 - Primary School)




Well organised visit, it was the school showing and the staff at the REP had everything organised and the morning went extremely smoothly. (December 2018 - Secondary School)
