"They’ve done it again - delivering a simple tale, enchantingly told."
The Stage on The Elves and the Shoemaker
Founded in 2000, Stuff and Nonsense has since been at the forefront of family theatre, leading the way in energetic, thought-provoking and playfully mischievous productions, full of fantastic puppetry and physical action.
With several original productions in our repertoire, our contemporary take on well-known tales including The Enormous Turnip, The Elves and The Shoemaker, 3 Little Pigs and The Emperor's New Clothes have become a hit on the touring circuit. We have performed to over 228,000 people nationwide since 2010 with return visits to many venues including Theatre Royal Plymouth, New Wolsey, Yeovil Octagon and many others. We are very popular at Christmas and often present several productions across the UK at once!
"The qualities of play, production and storytelling coalesce into something very exciting. A packed house of young people were treated to a skilful, generous and imaginative journey."
