"Fantastic performance.  Absolute winner. Gentle message delivered beautifully.  Families should embrace this wholeheartedly."

"Bronnie was fabulous, very well received. The kids raved when got back to class & had so many questions... how did she manage to master so many different accents?" (Eden Hills Primary School)

"Engaging, enthralling - & the way she held 100 students in the palm of her hand. Simply amazing." (Prince Alfred College)

"Wonderful... had children & adults alike totally engaged from beginning to end. Tales of pasts left behind & hope fro the future. The simple way we transform from character & nationality was a work of art... quickly transporting us into another place & time. Loved it & so relevant to our Units of Inquiry & the Australian Curriculum."

"Bronwen James holds & draws the audience into a funny moving journey through our layered history as a nation - an important addition to celebrating Australia's cultural diversity."

I loved the performance - engaging, virtuosic, funny, insightful..." (Dave Brown, Artistic Director Patch Theatre Company, 1991-2014)
