"Really had a wonderful evening at your Christmas show in the Mylor Theatre, it was fantastic! We were still laughing in the car on the way home."
"Filled with the spirit of Christmas... a cracker of a show!"
Frank Ruhrmund, The Cornishman
"Your show made our Christmas the most Christmassy ever, thank you!"
Review from 'The Cornishman'
"Brussels sprouts are just about the last link in my food chain. A handful of them will last me for weeks, but after having seen Squashbox Theatre's Christmassy Christmas Show at The Acorn, and enjoyed every minute of Craig Johnson's quest for his magical twelve sprouts of Christmas, I'll have to reconsider their position. From his opening song to his packed audience to the final piggyback his aged grandad gave him, Craig was in splendid form.
Perfectly in tune with the youngsters, speaking to them rather than at them, amid all the fun and games he also managed to teach them a thing or two, from the tale of the first Christmas tree and Yule-tide traditions to a nod in the direction of Sir Isaac Newton.
A show which more than lived up to its claim of being an over-stuffed stocking of seasonal surprises, while it had everything from naughty elves to an adorable, over-excited puppy, an absolutely beautiful angel to the world's worst Christmas jumper, not to mention Craig's skilful ad-libbing with his young audience, its highlight was his falsetto rendering of the carol Silent Night.
A show-stopper if ever there was one.
Filled with the spirit of Christmas, a cracker of a show, I confess, at its end it even had me joining in and chanting – I love sprouts!"
