Theatre 

We are passionate about creating interactive theatre that engages, delights and captivates our audience. 
Our theatre work is visual, inclusive, interactive and fun and whether you’re big or small our goal is to spark your imagination! As we are both in the process of learning Makaton we make sure to incorporate signs where we can and where we feel it really benefits the storytelling. 
 
Our shows often have a quest element, where we need help to solve problems and work as a team. We love using puppets, music and a mix of characters and bringing everyone on the journey with us. 
Our previous shows include bespoke productions for The National Trust, Castle Howard and Kiplin Hall. We were also commissioned as part of the Love Bites season at York Theatre Royal to create a 5 minute Love letter….ours was to ‘Storytelling’. 
 
Check out how we brought storytelling to life without using any words. 

Current Shows 

 
Once Upon a Fairytale 
 
Goldilocks is missing and we need your help to find her! 
 
Fairytales have been around for centuries. Passing from generation to generation taking on different twists and turns there are usually lessons to be learnt and characters to love . . . as well as those to watch out for. In this show we travel through a whole host of some favourite fairytales and meet some familiar faces along the way: Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man and some hungry Bears to name a few! 
 
There are of course some big twists (both with plotlines and dance moves) as well as the classic big energy, interactive performance style we love to deliver. 
 
AImed at 2-8 year olds
