The Great Christmas Dig Reviews

“Their shows are incredibly interactive and also lots of fun, which makes them perfect for the whole family to enjoy.”

We had such a lovely time over the Christmas period with our amazing show The Great Christmas Dig whilst we were in residence at Cast in Doncaster, and we have had some lovely reviews in response!

Including this wonderful review from the blog This Day I Love:

“We headed over to Cast in Doncaster to watch ‘The Great Christmas Dig’ by Handmade theatre. Last year we saw the 12 birds of Christmas and absolutely loved it so we were very excited to see the performance this year.

Whilst last year we were sat in nests, this year we were on an exciting archaeological dig in Egypt and so we were sat on rugs and benches. We were greeted to our seats by a camel, which set the tone and got the girls giggling from the start. Christmas spirit came to introduce herself too, which was nice.

As is always the case with Handmade productions their shows are incredibly interactive and also lots of fun, which makes them perfect for the whole family to enjoy. The Great Christmas Dig did not disappoint. There was singing and dancing, and audience participation. The girls loved digging to discover Christmas decorations and getting the chance to decorate the tree. Each cast member should be congratulated in ensuring that no one was forgotten about or left out and that every child got to participate if they wanted to.

50 minutes just flew by once again but it is safe to say the dig was successful and we all left full of Christmas Spirit! We all thoroughly enjoyed the performance and would highly recommend it.”
