Delve into our trunk of tremendous tales and join Really Big Pants Theatre Company on amazing adventures!
Presenting theatre with serious messages in a playful way
Our awesome shows use the primary curriculum (and some really big pants) to inspire, educate, and entertain children aged 3-11 in your school, arts centre or community venue
SUDDENLY…!: a fast, fun twist on traditional tales for KS1 and KS2 (ages 6-11)
PLUNDERED!: an environmental quest battling a dastardly litterbug pirate for Reception, KS1 and KS2 (ages 5-11)
WONKY: tackling bullying and self-esteem via rap (and wonky vegetables) for Y2-6 (ages 7-11)
CLARE AND CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY: a, erm, glorious story about sharing, exploring, and daring for EYFS/KS1 (ages 3-7)
Are you a venue with an outdoor space? We would love to bring you our new show CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY and perform it outside! The show is very simple and only requires two chairs. A smallish audience could sit within their own marked out family group areas (and children challenged to stay inside their circle as part of the event). Obviously the onus would be on safety, so we’d recommend the age range as 5-7ish to avoid toddlers rampaging into each other. There are only the two of us, and we adhere to the government guidelines of work practice. And we are very alert. We would LOVE to be performing again, and to be supporting venues too. (We’d also have to rely on the weather, but one crisis at a time…) What do you think? Read all about the show here, and get in touch!
Throughout lockdown, we have tried to stay positive (and healthy) and creative! So we wrote a brand new adventure for Grandma and Red, beloved heroines from our storytelling show, SUDDENLY…!, and shared a page daily on Twitter and Facebook. Not only that but our very own voice artist extraordinaire, Willow Nash, is narrating an audio version of each page which we’ll be sharing there too. And you can get acquainted with Grandma and Red by downloading the original audiobook for FREE on the Cloudaloud app.
So, hooray for EVEN SUDDENLIER…! – read the whole story here!
Stay safe, keep smiling, and keep sharing stories. We can’t wait to see you again soon. Love from Joe and Willow and our really big pants xx
PS We’ve named the baddie Mr Covid. His daughter is called Corona. She’s 19. They WILL be vanquished. Especially when Grandma introduces her old friend Bevan Enaitchess.
