Finding Dory

Finding Dory (Babes Review)

    It’s hard to explain why I felt so emotional at the end of Finding Dory. Maybe it was the theme of parental loss running through the movie. I saw the preview in June which had been a tough period, with Father’s Day falling on my mum’s birthday. It ain’t easy being an orphan,…

Disney’s Aladdin the Musical (Babes Review)
