Our fast, fun theatre shows for children aged 5-11 provide a springboard into primary learning in your school, arts centre or community venue
We are beyond excited to announce that our storytelling show, SUDDENLY…!, will be available as a chapter book this spring! We have adapted the show into a short story, and added two further adventures for Grandma and Red, called STUMPED! and SHELVED!. The wonderful indie children’s bookshop, Chicken & Frog, are hosting a multi-school launch on 26 February for us, just in time for World Book Day. And we have been posting sneak peeks of the glorious artwork by Rosie Alabaster on our Twitter feed – take a look.
A ‘non-stop adventure featuring delicious wordplay’ (Kentish Towner) – SUDDENLY…! is already available as 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? Recorded at Strathmore Publishing, it’s available in Waterstones, The Owl Bookshop, Village Books, Barnes Bookshop, Haslemere Bookshop, Chicken and Frog Bookshop and online.

We’re thrilled to be returning to Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival to perform on their Schools Day in May. Look out for lots of other tour dates in public venues being announced soon – including our return to the Brentwood Children’s Literary Festival in July!
And this summer we shall also be returning to the Museum of London Docklands with PLUNDERED!, our show about the environment, as part of their wonderful programme for schools.
Our new show WONKY will be available this year! 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!
