CGiii Comment

Well...if you want to make a point...do it with humour. This has bucket loads.

When the writing is this good, there can be no bad performances...comedy is difficult enough...but, kids doing comedy is a different ballgame altogether! Here, they all step up to the plate and knock it out of the park!

Hysterical and poignant.


Watch... 

The(ir) Blurb...
