for a previous production "Jude Henshall, Nathan O'Keefe and Ellen Steele...work together like a well-oiled machine, with consistent transitions and movement, whilst still giving each character their own little touches...The use of different sized puppets in background and foreground complements the set and provides the kind of thoughtful touches that make this production far more than your average children’s show...Amongst the best children’s theatre you will find; don’t miss this gorgeous show."

for a previous production "Two cute, expressive Grug puppets of different sizes are used to lend depth and perspective to the story, and enliven it with sudden eruptions of visual comedy. The tag-team puppeteering is extremely skilled, cute and funny. Director Sam Haren has harnessed every element into a seamless whole...A charming theatre experience for younger children and their parents alike." Full Review
for a previous production "Windmill Theatre staff are experts at involving the children from the moment they arrive. Starting with reading the 'Grug' stories in the foyer the children were engrossed until the doors opened...Performers Jude Henshall, Nathan O’Keefe and Ellen Steele were animated and exciting. They expertly and patiently steered the children toward positive theatre behavior while capturing the attention and stimulating their imaginations...It’s easy to see why Windmill Theatre wins so many awards."
