"...I had a huge smile on my face throughout. While it provides a good introduction to the wonder of live theatre for children by using theatrical elements to let childhood adventures that youngsters can easily identify with play out it from of them, it also allows grownups to return to the simple wonders of childhood and experience just how enchanting and delightful the small moments in a child's life can be..

"...the fast-paced adventures under Katie McFadzen’s direction never wane..It’s the heart and affection for the material that makes Childsplay’s production work as well as it does. It reaches out and gives you that warm comforting feeling you might have experienced when, as a child, your mother hugged you when you needed a hug the most...." -David Appleford, Valley Screen and Stage (click here to read the complete review)

"...the play employs music and charming shadow puppetry to hold young theatergoers’ attention. ..“The Snowy Day” presents relatable everyday situations to young children, but it doesn’t explore any issues that might have a lasting impact.
