This play was about friendship, discovery, sharing and the exchange of skills and knowledge. Peacemaker had music, dancing, juggling, comedy and tears. It reached out and involved its audience and it could be enjoyed at many levels. It was a true learning experience as well as a great Christmas entertainment.
