Online shows

THEATRE… ONLINE!
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 to share with schools!  Email us at childrenstheatre@reallybigpants.co.uk to make your booking and we will send you the protected links.  You can play the shows to different classes at different times over a week or so and share with home learners.  We will also email you the free accompanying resource sheets.  For an extra £20 we’d be delighted to have an online Q&A session with your children too.  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!

ISN’T SCIENCE AMAZING! for EYFS/KS1
20 minutes
£40 per school or nursery
Watch the trailer!
We created this show especially for online viewing for ages 3-7.  This highly visual treat encourages children to be curious about the world, and to learn about science as they play.  After all, everything is science (even our really big pants) – and science is amazing!
“We loved it!  So much to think about and discuss!” Deputy head, Willowbrook Primary
“Wonderful – we LOVE Really Big Pants!  As soon as the screen pops up with those spotty pants, our kids are so excited because they know what’s coming!  Can’t wait to welcome you back in real life” Old Oak Primary

THE REALLY BIG LOVE BOOK DAY PLAY for EYFS/KS1
20 minutes
£40 per school or nursery
Watch the trailer!
Described as “sheer joy” by Putnoe Primary, this online show is a great way to celebrate reading all year round.
It’s Book Day and Joe wants to read.  But Willow wants to play.
That pesky book!  She’ll try anything to tempt Joe away (even really big pants).
But what does she find in the toy basket to make her change her mind?
You can also order any of our books featured in THE REALLY BIG LOVE BOOK DAY PLAY through us at a discount for your school library, which makes for happy reading (and happy playing)!
“Such an endearing show which combines the value of reading and playing with a wonderful sense of fun” Assistant head, Cheapside Primary
“Our children were completely engrossed… brilliant” Reception team, St Richard’s Primary
“I really enjoyed it because it was funny” 4yo, Whitefield Primary

SUDDENLY…! for Y1-6
60 minutes
£80 per school
Watch the trailer!
Our storytelling quest!  Read all about it on our SUDDENLY…! page – and, yes, the live theatre show is still available!  Despite the online version not being the usual hugely interactive experience in your hall, there are still our pre-show activities to get all the children joining in, and to build anticipation for the event, plus our extensive resource pack to support learning.  The show also has an accompanying illustrated chapter book, which you can order through us and we will post you signed copies.
“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
“A MASSIVE thank you!  Your show totally captured the children’s imagination.  You had them in stitches… they felt included and involved… they loved all the opportunities to join in physically and get active too.  We had a really great discussion afterwards, and lots told me they had been inspired to create something themselves.  I hope that we get to a point where we could have you in live!  PS I’m sorry that the photos aren’t more lively.  I took a few at the start and then became totally engrossed and joined in with all the actions, entirely forgetting my camera duties” Y4 teacher, Gospel Oak Primary
“The kids absolutely adored the show.  It was so immersive and interactive despite being on the IWB.  They went home laughing their socks off.  I just wanted you to know that you brought some well deserved and much needed joy to the kids – big and small!” Y4 teacher, Old Oak 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
