Our fast, fun theatre shows for children aged 5-11 provide a springboard into primary learning in your school, arts centre or community venue
Our storytelling show, SUDDENLY…!, is now available as a chapter book! We’ve adapted the show into a short story and added two further adventures for Grandma and Red called STUMPED! and SHELVED!, with glorious illustrations by Rosie Alabaster throughout. The wonderful indie children’s bookshop, Chicken & Frog, hosted a multi-school launch for us and the book can be bought from them or Burway Books, Foyles or Waterstones. A ‘non-stop adventure featuring delicious wordplay’ (Kentish Towner) – SUDDENLY…! is also a ‘rip-roaring’ audiobook! Can you spot all the objects in Grandma’s hair on the cover illustrated by Rosie Alabaster on our What’s on page? Published by Strathmore, it’s available in Waterstones, Haslemere Bookshop and Owl Bookshop.
You’ll also be able to get your hands on our book at all the lit fests we’re at in 2018! As well as a couple of new appearances, we are thrilled to have been invited back to several of the fabulous festivals we played at last year. We got off to an AMAZING start at Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival in the glorious Kent countryside, where we performed on their Schools Day and were treated to a rapturous welcome and response; followed by our return to the brilliant Barnes Children’s Literature Festival, and our debuts at the Stoke Newington Literary Festival and the Buckingham Literary Festival, where the audiences rocked the halls!
Next up is the first (and no doubt fantastic) Roehampton Reads on Saturday 23 June.
And – really big whoop! – we’re heading back to the Brentwood Theatre in Essex to perform at the excellent Brentwood Children’s Literary Festival on Friday 27 July!
Plus more to be announced… watch this space!
And this summer we can’t wait to head back to the Museum of London Docklands with PLUNDERED!, our show about the environment, as part of their brilliant FREE programme for schools.
Our new show WONKY will have its premiere in September! We’ve been shown round some incredible edible playgrounds in schools and it’s wonderful to see children connecting with nature and learning how to grow food and develop a healthy attitude to nutrition. Don’t forget to check out our resource packs, overflowing with related activities and discussion points.
And behold our video… get a little taste of our shows! A REALLY BIG THANK YOU to the marvellous Maya McAllister Demangeat for editing it for us so beautifully.
Thrilling theatre! Stupendous stories! Exciting education!
And some really big pants
