Catriona's Castle Reviews, as shown in  

BIRTHDAY PARTY Fun, Unique, High Quality As a professional in the field of educational drama and children's theatre, I highly recommend Catriona's Castle for a unique experience for young people (and their caregivers!). Catriona's Castle would definitely appeal to kids who like the stage, but there's a place for everyone - boys and girls, outgoing and shy - preschoolers to tweens. My daughter, her friends, and all of their parents loved the "Snow White" party she had for her third birthday. The scenery, props, and costumes were well-crafted and kid-sized. The structure of the storytelling was very well designed - the Fairy Godmother (Catriona) explained what was going to happen, cast and costumed children (and adults!), and then served as a combination narrator, emcee, and kid wrangler. I was initially wary of the idea of the children being whispered their lines, fearing it would slow down the action and be distracting, but it worked perfectly, even with my group of toddlers. Catriona was very responsive to the personality of the group and the children as individuals; one little guest, for instance, came to the party dressed as a mermaid and wanted to be a mermaid in the show, so Catriona incorporated a mermaid character into the  "Snow White" story! In addition to the storytelling, Catriona also provided lovely invitations, a beautiful and tasty storybook cake, and the nicest thematic goody bags you can imagine. This was a great party - everyone raved about it. Michelle F., 3/14

CULTURAL ARTS ENRICHMENT PROGRAM Our summer camp program spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with the amazing Catriona! From the minute she walked in to the minute she walked out - she had us at "Hello!" This was our first visit with Catriona and will not be our last!
