The show is fully staged musical adaptation lasting 40 minutes (plus Q&A). The music is written by Tim Smith (The Lion King) & Luke Hunter (The Sound of Music, Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys)
We encourage audience participation and active engagement in all of our performances and we use puppetry to fully engage the students and to broaden the possibilities of the way we stage our shows.
Our post-performance Q&A is structured and focused on the themes raised in the book and a behind the scenes insight into how our set, props, puppets, etc. work and how they were made.
We also provide a teachers resource pack to support our incursion both before and after we've been.
We provide all of the staging and sound requirements, all we need from you is a performance space approx. 8m by 5m, plus enough room for the students to sit and watch the show.
