We love to learn and play through theatre!

We are a Children's theatre company that use the creativity of theatre to help children build confidence. Whether this is developing their speaking and listening skills, helping them to work as a team or introducing them to an exciting world of stories and magical characters. 

The plays we create for Early Years and Key stage one are interactive and we encourage the audience to get involved in helping us tell the story. Learning should be fun and here we provide the perfect platform to play.

We are currently taking school bookings for 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', 'The Ugly Duckling' and 'Treasure Island', available at the end of April-September 2014.

School and nursery tours are ongoing with a special rate for Liverpool bases Nurseries and Schools.

The Early Years Foundation Stage emphasises in its early learning goals the importance of young children “understanding and enjoying stories, books and rhymes” and “listening with enjoyment and responding to stories, songs and other music, rhymes and poems and making up their own stories, rhymes and poems”.[1]

In order to facilitate the appropriate learning conditions for reading acquisition and learning in the early years, schools and settings should recognise the importance of play in children’s learning, and in their capacity to imagine, explore and experiment. They should ensure that there is equal access for every child and active challenge to discrimination and stereotyping; place emphasis on personal, social and emotional development and recognise the importance of developing self-confidence, self-esteem and independent thinking.
