“A challenging and entertaining piece about bullying in school...The songs and dialogue seem at times very episodic and arbitrary in how they advance the plot, but all are performed with great enthusiasm and skill...The major problem...is that the story is very one-dimensional...the story doesn’t truly develop...That said I think the show has great prospects as a school production...With some development and re-writing, there could even be another 'Matilda.'"
“The production buzzes with energy from beginning to end, the show oozes talent from the young cast, the music is original and the choreography is tight...The score is inventive: catchy music and clever lyrics...These young people can dance, sing and act in this clever, uplifting, poignant story professionally and deftly told...There were a couple of pitchy moments in one or two songs and the ending is perhaps too neat and quick, but overall this is a hugely emotionally impactful show."
“Impressive cast and choreography in its story of ‘acceptance, courage, and friendship’...Heart-breaking, uplifting, and very watchable, and though the plot was not exactly believable, this was saved by its...incredible young talent and fantastic choreography...The show...promoted the unrealistic stigma around secondary school...Despite this, much of the show was great: the cast was wonderful, the music, despite its sometimes unoriginal lyrics.”
