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
It’s our fifth birthday this summer! And we’re celebrating by writing our fourth show (maths was never our strong suit). CLARE AND CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY will be for EYFS/KS1 and will have an accompanying picture book.
We’re also marking the milestone with five free shows for five primary schools! We are so pleased to be working in collaboration with the fabulous team at Shepherd’s Bush Library; the wonderful indie children’s bookshop, Chicken & Frog, who have been huge supporters of ours; the lovely Alligator’s Mouth bookshop; and the mighty BookTrust, who we teamed up with for Pyjamarama on 7 June at Soho Parish Primary School, where children and teachers alike were in their pyjamas to watch SUDDENLY…! (which they declared ‘awesome!’)!
We’re so excited to be returning to one of our favourite festivals, the Brentwood Children’s Literary Festival, where we’ll be performing WONKY and signing copies of our book, POETRY VERSUS POTTERY, at the Brentwood Theatre at 2pm on Saturday 3 August. 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.
We’re thrilled to be returning to the Chiswick Book Festival in September for the fourth time! This year we are performing at a local primary school as part of a schools outreach programme, but there is still a great line-up for the public events – check it out here!
Another return is to the lovely Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone on Sunday 15 September – this time with our storytelling show, SUDDENLY…!. Join us for a fast, fun twist on traditional tales! Did you know we also have an illustrated chapter book and an audiobook to accompany this show? Find out more on our SUDDENLY…! page!
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
