This wonderful production is one of a series of participation musicals created by Image Musical Theatre for Key Stage 1 and 2. The show itself is preceded by a rehearsal workshop where some of the children are chosen to take part in the show while the remainder of the audience are rehearsed into four chorus songs. Image Musical Theatre has an excellent reputation for producing work that is stimulating and entertaining while maintaining very high production values.

By sharing the experience of the giant’s selfishness, a moment of realisation and finally his redemption, children and adults alike are reminded of the value of generosity. The show includes the participation of a dozen children who play the villagers and the whole audience who take part as chorus singers. With beautiful period costumes, an ingenious set and wonderful music from Robert Hyman, this production will continue Image Musical Theatre’s tradition of providing the very best touring theatre.

The Selfish Giant is a literacy treat for the whole school to enjoy watching together in your school hall, with no fuss (no buses!), very professional and great value for money.
Rehearsal / Workshop 30 mins — Interval — Performance 1 hour.

Available autumn term 2023, visiting production, £450 + VAT.

Our children were totally engaged throughout the entire performance. They loved how they could interact with the cast and join in with the songs. They are now bursting with enthusiasm about our writing project based on the production!

Scenery, actors and script were exactly the right balance for this group of children. New members of staff to your productions were inspired, long standing staff agreed it was of your usual high standard.

The play was moving and engaging. The children enjoyed getting to grips with the meaningful story. Those who were chosen to act appreciated being part of a professional performance. Children were still humming the songs several days later! Thank you.
