Our awesome theatre shows use the primary curriculum (and some really big pants) to inspire, educate, and entertain children aged 6-11 in your school, arts centre or community venue
We celebrated our fifth birthday this summer, and to mark the milestone we’ve written our fourth show (maths was never our strong suit). CLARE AND CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY is for EYFS/KS1 and will have an accompanying picture book, illustrated by the brilliant Steve Smallman. Rehearsals are well underway – we’re currently knee-deep in teddy bears, pears, and really big pants!
We are so proud to be returning to the Beanstalk BookFest for the third year in a row. The motto of this lovely literacy charity is #ReadGrowThrive and we couldn’t agree more. We’re performing SUDDENLY…! on Friday 1 November for Beanstalk schools in London, and we’ll be signing copies of our book. (Find out more about our accompanying illustrated chapter book and audiobook on our SUDDENLY…! page!)
And we’re thrilled to be heading to the Stratford Literary Festival on Sunday 3 November with SUDDENLY…! – join us for a fast, fun twist on traditional tales!
There are so many exciting dates to be announced for 2020 – including our return to the wonderful Watermill Theatre in Newbury on 2 May. This time we’ll be performing WONKY there, which has an accompanying book called POETRY VERSUS POTTERY. The poems are written in the voices of the characters from the show, and the book features artwork by our fabulous illustrator, Rosie Alabaster. Feast your eyes on the gorgeous cover on our WONKY page!
One of the themes of WONKY is food growing. 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
