It went down an absolute storm, Richard.

We all have a really good night and really enjoyed
the Murder Mystery. Brilliant. Thank you very much.
If anyone needs a Murder Mystery group I will
definitely recommend your group.

Katie Water - Obart Pumps, Maidstone

Fantastic evening last Saturday - Alternate Shadows always put on such a terrific professional evening.

Sally Grossmith - Medway 11th Scouts

We had a fantastic time and I am getting so much positive feedback. Please thank everyone involved for making our event so successful. The script was excellent and the actors really got into the spirit of things - we loved every moment! What a fun evening! I really can't find the right words to thank you enough - it was an incredible evening.

Angie Ward - Gravesend WI

We all thought your event was excellent, and I have heard many complimentary comments from those that attended.

Andy - Medway 28th Scouts

I just had to write and tell you how much we enjoyed
our evening with you. Our thanks go to you and your
team for an impressive and memorable performance.
So many people felt they had to say what a fun time
they had. I am in no doubt that we will be in touch
some time to repeat the experience.

Christine Baker - Saintara

On a cold, wet Saturday afternoon, Alternate Shadows Theatre Company came to Rainham's Riverside
Primary School & Children's Centre to deliver
their own brand of funshine.

Organised by the school for the benefit of the children and their families who attend, Alternate Shadows' production of Beauty and the Beast, written by James Barrie, exceeded expectations with their fantastic set changes and comedy. Their enthusiastic cast were hilarious and lively, with great one-liners and encouraging audience participation.

Four year old Austin summed up the show when he said "I loved the panto. It made me laugh. Smelly was really funny. I liked the bit where we got sprayed with the water pistol and the children dancing on the stage."

Marie - Riverside CP School

Just wanted to say once more how much my husband
and I, and our 2 children, enjoyed the show.
You pitched it just right for adults and children alike
and the audience participation was much enjoyed.
We were impressed by the whole cast's performance
and very much hope to see you again soon.
