We have toured many well-known titles, which we adapt to make relevant to the lives of children today. We reach families who are not normally theatre attenders with theatrical, imaginative and surprising experiences. All our shows are created alongside children. Child-centred practice is one of our areas of expertise and is a fruitful and challenging way of exploring ideas.
