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

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)
THE REALLY BIG LOVE BOOK DAY PLAY: an online show tempting children to pick up a book for EYFS/KS1 (ages 3-7)
ISN’T SCIENCE AMAZING!: a highly visual online treat encouraging children to be curious about the world for EYFS/KS1 (ages 3-7)

We’re so thrilled to be back performing LIVE! Join us this autumn for our show CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY for ages 3-7ish, which encourages children to not only share their belongings and enjoy a great story, but also to explore the natural world so close to home and look after wildlife. Plus get your signed copy of the accompanying picture book, illustrated by Steve Smallman, after the show for only £5. Here are the dates so far, and stay tuned for more to be announced…
Saturday 25 September at 2pm: we’re rocking The Cockpit Theatre in London – our fourth appearance at this fab venue.
Saturday 9 October at 10am and 11.15am: we’re tickled pink to be performing at the Pickled Pepper Theatre in north London – with two chances to see the show!
Tuesday 26 October at 2.30pm: looking forward to half-term already?! Join us at the Askew Road library in west London for lots of family fun! Plus at each venue we’ll have activity sheets for kids to colour in and practise their rhyming!
Looking for awesome affordable educational ONLINE entertainment? Nothing beats the experience of live theatre but (despite technology not being our strong suit) we adapted to the challenges of these times and now have online shows (aka ‘sheer joy’) to share with schools far and wide on their smartboards and with home learners. So pop open the popcorn and join us online for some amazing adventures on the really big screen (although if you’re watching on your phone, it will be a really small screen)!
Our online show THE RHYMES AND CRIMES OF NAUGHTY JACK is ideal for National Poetry Day on 7 October. It’s only £40 per primary school/nursery, so book us and engage and enchant your EYFS/KS1 children with some poetry (and puppets)!
And check out our YouTube channel – as well as all the trailers for our online shows, we’ve recorded some readings of our stories and poems and bits and bobs. Watch a taste of our theatre shows below, and we can’t wait to see you again soon. Stay safe, keep smiling, and keep sharing stories. Love from Joe and Willow and our really big pants xx
