Praise for Ellie and the Enormous Sneeze
“Full of snot related humour, music and bubbles- a perfect recipe for young children.”
An Organised Mess
“Ellie and the Enormous Sneeze was a fun-filled, high energy show that kept my 4 and 6 year-olds attention for the full hour.”
“The story moves at a perfect pace, there are lots of belly laughs and I enjoyed it just as much as my six year old.”
“Mouths of Lions create an energetic and charming production that reminds us of the importance of friendship and helping each other.”
Sitting On The Fourth Wall
“I don’t know a child that doesn’t laugh at the thought of snot and bogies.”
"Snot-tastic, fun, silly, entertaining, creative.”
"It was really funny when Stanley sneezed - YUK!!" - Jessica, aged 4.
