“THE best Theatre company EVER!… We came to see your production of The Gingerbread Man 2 years ago and it was phenomenal! We were all transfixed and still talk about it today!”
The Civic, Barnsley – Pinocchio
Friday 17th – Friday 24th December
Using the classic elements of this tale – a poor woodcarver, the tell-tale growing nose, the dream of becoming a real boy – S&N add their hallmark hilarity, cleverness, puppetry, music, fantastic staging, outstanding performers and extraordinary physical tricks, in their most ambitious production to date.
“My 3 year old just had the time of his life and left on such a high. What a fabulous production. We all loved it.”
Stuff and Nonsense are leaders in family theatre and Director Niki McCretton has children’s sensibilities in her heart and family connection as her mission. Our performances always combine an exciting physicality with specially commissioned music, charming puppetry and humour for all ages. An opportunity to enjoy time together and build memories, families don’t stop talking about our shows!
All shows are suitable for all the family, ages 3+.
Interventions for improving accessibility across the runs include relaxed performances and BSL interpreted performances. Please see individual venue listings for further details.
