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)
As we find ourselves back in lockdown in January 2021, we are trying to stay positive (and healthy!) and creative. So we’re writing a brand new online show for EYFS/KS1 classes and families called THE REALLY BIG LOVE BOOK DAY PLAY, a highly visual 30 minute treat encouraging a love of reading. Watch this space for all the details about how to book the show – it will be ready in time for World Book Day in March and will make the perfect celebration (along with reading lots of books)!
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
Looking for awesome affordable educational online entertainment for World Book Day and beyond? We know nothing beats the experience of live theatre, but (despite technology not being our strong suit) we tried to adapt to the challenges of 2020 and filmed two of our shows (in a very simple way) to share with schools on their smartboards for just £60 each!
Head straight to SUDDENLY…! or WONKY to find out all about them, and the accompanying resource packs, pre-show activities and illustrated books!
We are so excited to be bringing our beloved shows to the really big screen (although if you watch them on your phone, it will be a really small screen), so pop open the popcorn and join us online for some amazing adventures!
Plus for just £20 more, we’d be delighted to have a Zoom/Teams Q&A session with your school when everyone is safely back in.
“The online version of SUDDENLY…! was absolutely fantastic and the children really responded to it as though it were a live show. They particularly enjoyed the links to traditional and contemporary stories and fairy tales” Assistant head, Cheapside Primary
“Thank you so much for your amazing Q&A session. The children were buzzing for the rest of the day and loved creating their own interpretation of the genie!” Y3 teacher, Linton Heights Junior School
Our 2020 diary was jam-packed full of bookings, and we are so so thrilled to announce the first rebooking for 2021 (subject to change, of course!). Fingers crossed we will be back at The Cockpit in north west London for the fourth time on Saturday 27 March with our new show, CLARE & CORY SHARE A (GLORIOUS) STORY. Come the warmer weather, this show can also be performed outdoors. There are only two of us, and we adhere to the government guidelines of work practice. And we are very alert.
During the first lockdown, 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, narrated an audio version of each page which we shared 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!
PS We 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.
And if you’re really missing us – 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
