Our fast, fun theatre shows for children aged 5-11 provide a springboard into primary learning in your school, arts centre or community venue
2017 so far: eight schools, six lit fests, four theatres, one arts festival, one arts centre, one museum, one bookshop, thousands of happy, excited, BRILLIANT children – and some really big pants! Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received. We’ll be announcing our 2018 public dates soon, and you can follow our travels and adventures on our Twitter feed. A really big thank you to all the fabulous audiences we’ve played to, and the lovely teams who have looked after us so well in all the venues.
Our new show WONKY will be available soon! 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.
A ‘non-stop adventure featuring delicious wordplay’ (Kentish Towner) – we’ve adapted our storytelling show, SUDDENLY…!, into a ‘rip-roaring’ audiobook! Rosie Alabaster has illustrated the glorious cover; see if you can spot all the objects in Grandma’s hair on our What’s on page. Recorded at Strathmore Publishing, it’s available in Waterstones, The Owl Bookshop, Village Books, Barnes Bookshop, Haslemere Bookshop, Chicken and Frog Bookshop and online.
