All our unique performances are highly visual, tactile and interactive. We always encourage our audience to become active participants, engaging in songs and activities. Our stories take you on abstract journeys, learning about the world around you while having lots and lots of fun!

Each show involves a fantastic mix of songs, stories, props, puppets, drama and adventure, led by a talented team of artists, performers and musicians. Our shows are suitable for age range 0-100 and a variety of abilities, including those with special needs.
