"Mario delivered a full days worth of programs to our Special Needs School.

Throughout the day, 2 classes at a time were completely engaged in the content Mario was delivering, for half an hour at a time. Feedback across the school has been uniformly positive, and I would recommend Immersive Theatres to anybody without hesitation"

Teacher feedback after 60 Reception children experienced a 5m digital dome adventure with the 2-in-1 PerformancePrincipia ISS visuals, various Apollo & search for life content and the 360° film Space Shapes:

"I can’t thank you enough for such a high-quality, well-presented show that was both entertaining and informative for the children. You pitched it perfectly – being at a level they could understand whilst deepening their knowledge (and mine!) about Space. I think the part about life on the Space Station particularly captured their imagination, and there has been lots of astronaut role-play from both boys and girls all day! I was very proud of the children’s behaviour and engagement, and amazed at their level of knowledge.

Here are some of my favourite quotes:

  • ‘This has got to be the best day of my life!’
  • ‘That meteorite was so heavy, wow!’
  • ‘I want to be an astronaut when I grow up’ (one of the girls)
  • ‘Do you know if it doesn’t twinkle it’s not a star, it’s a planet!’

"I was so impressed with the quality of the visual effects which brought the topic fully to life without being too overwhelming, and with Mario who completely engaged the children for a whole 45 minutes - giving them a chance to contribute and ask questions"

The level of professionalism made it the most stress free party I've ever put on, and the two shows really stimulated and engaged both children and adults alike. My son's classmates are still talking about it! Mario tailored two shows to match my son's interests and I could not have asked for better entertainment, or a more courteous service.
