" The play engaged the audience, ensuring everyone was actively learning. The script ensured that important messages around healthy eating and school meals were reinforced in a fun way."
Glyn Wright: County Inspector/Adviser for Personal Development Learning, Hampshire
"It's easy for the message about healthy eating to become preachy and serious - Jamie in the Land of Dinnersphere manages to do just the opposite. Watching children get caught up in Jamie's adventures convinced me that not only is the play hugely entertaining, but is also a brilliant example of educational theatre."
