Relevant, For kids only

See it if you are taking kids with you - gets across the theme of protecting animals and the environment.

Don't see it if you don't go with children so you can appreciate the performance through their reactions - otherwise it is mostly mediocre and repetitive.

Also My two grand kids, ages 10 and 4 liked it. I found it well-intentioned... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Intelligent, Educational, Good acting

See it if you like shows that teach kids a lesson and you don't mind shows where people play animals that talk.

Delightful, Entertaining, Fun, Cute, Moralistic

See it if you have children who like animal stories.

Don't see it if you don't have kids with you or if you are offended by a rather sexy cheetah in a children's show - that was rather odd.

Cliched, Fluffy, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you'd like to give your kids a piece of relevant (yet entertaining) theatre... it has its moments, but there's room for improvement...

Don't see it if You can't handle low budget, mediocre talent (in all departments) and an already well known "moral" being shoved down your throat...

Slow, Fluffy

See it if You have children and want them to see a light and airy show. Entertains for kids.

Entertaining, Quirky, Resourceful, Terrific costumes, Repetitive

See it if you like intimate, resourceful, cute storytelling by young enthusiastic developing talent. Kids in the crowded LOVED it. Catchy fun.

Don't see it if you don't like cutesy entertainment for kids that tries to be hip; it's kind of Madagascar-like. (or Eddie Murphy for the last 10 years)

Funny, Entertaining, Confusing, Kid friendly, Lol

See it if There's a lot going on for a kids show but too "kiddy" for a regular show. It is very comical though, for more reasons that it should be!

Don't see it if You don't enjoy kids shows or animals as people.

Clever, Fluffy, Quirky, Relevant

See it if you have little kids and 70 minutes to kill in midtown. The production is surprisingly lavish for TYA, good performances, esp the little boy

Don't see it if you're not with someone 10 and under. The story doesn't make much sense, and you'll have the whole idea in 5 min. But solid kids' show.

84
Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging

Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing

See it if It is really for children but I found it to be funny, cute and worth the hour that it runs. One actor had great mannerisms - a real plus.
