Clever, Delightful, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy smart children's theatre.

Don't see it if You dislike shows that encourage call and response from children (think Dora the Explorer). You get annoyed by mics that aren't loud enough

"Everything that great children’s theater should be...Entertaining, engaging, and educational in its delightful delivery of an important message about the need to save our planet by protecting the environment...The show is at once smart and silly, with humor that will get even the adults laughing...The entire cast is irresistible...'Gruff!' is guaranteed to keep children (and adults) spellbound and to remind all ages to stop polluting our clean air and destroying our green Earth."

For a previous production

“Doppelskope combines various storytelling styles in this delightful performance…Cast members impress with their high energy…It's an hour of nonstop fun for the kids, but there are also extremely relevant sociopolitical messages in this show…The issues explored in 'Gruff!' are more urgent than ever, and its creative team does a commendable job in creating an educational, well-crafted, and exhilarating piece for all ages.”
