What happens in the show?

It is a story about a boy who wants a little brother and goes to find some magical nose dust to help him. The actors paint the scenery background while the story happens.

Describe the show in five words

Disappointing storytelling and painting show.

Who was your favourite character and why? 

There was a dog/rabbit thing. I don't really know why. It was just better than the other characters. 

Were there any characters you didn’t like? 

I really didn't like the main character. All he wanted was a little brother. I don't want a little brother but he forced his parents to listen to him about it until he had brothers and that is unacceptable.

What did you like most about the show? 

The painting of the background scenes was the best part but they didn't do this that much. This was silly as it is called Brush.

What didn’t you like about the show?

The story. 

What did you think of the music? 

The harmonica player was good.

Would you tell your friends to come and see the show? 

No, I'd only recommend it to people who like weird stories, want a little brother and like glitter nose dust. 

What did your grown-up think of the show? 

Dad said, "What was that?" at the end. He thought it was rubbish.
