“Slick, original and funny, Stones and Bones is a one man whirlwind tour of prehistoric Cornwall, and is a must see for all Dinosaur lovers, young and old alike.” Sophia Richards, guide2bristol.com
"Craig's success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious. An engaging entertainer to be treasured." Frank Ruhrmund, The Cornishman
“Craig Johnson is totally at ease with his audience, adult and child alike, and combines an innate understanding and delight in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.“ Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre
