With everybody staying at home we've had to cancel our summer performances of DIG!, our play for babies and toddlers.
We've been thinking hard about how we could still bring theatre to our very youngest audiences, and with the support of Arts Council England we will be creating a brand new online piece: BEACH.
From Monday 22nd June join us for weekly videos showcasing new puppets and songs which will transport us to the seaside.
Let's watch and singalong together, as we meet crabs, seagulls, fish and a very curious toddler for an afternoon on the sand.
We are delighted to announce that we have received Arts Council England funding for Zoom! a new play for 3-8 years with music, songs and puppetry, touring from Autumn 2020.
Molly knows everything about space. All the planets and their moons; even the number of Saturn’s rings. EVERYTHING!
Molly is definitely, absolutely going to be an astronaut when she grows up.
But when, one wintry night, Molly meets a visitor from outer space she realises she still has a lot to learn about looking after our very own planet, Earth.
A gentle introduction for young children into ways they can help to protect their environment.
This year we’ve created 2 stellar education packs to enable teachers to use the story as a context for different areas of learning.
The first pack is designed to extend the children’s live theatre experience into subject areas across the curriculum including Maths, Geography, Science, History, PSHE and Art & Design.
Our second early years pack is specifically designed for younger children and meets the Areas of Learning across the Early Years Foundation Stages.
You can find both available to download in .pdf format in Teacher Resources here.
We opened our new play for babies and toddlers at artsdepot and then went to Farnham Maltings, Godalming Borough Hall, Creation Space, Basingstoke and various play groups and children's centres.
We wrote DIG for babies and toddlers up to 18 months but have extended the age range up to two years due to public demand! It's perfect for babies who can sit independently up to toddlers who are finding their first words.
Visit the 'shows' section of the website for when and where you can join us. We'll be adding more dates over the coming weeks.
Let's get digging!
