Covid 19: when it’s all over

To all schools, we hope you are all ok and coping in these unprecedented times. And our heartfelt thanks to you for looking after key-workers’ children in this crisis – you too are in our minds and it is our turn to applaud you! Our tours may temporarily be on hold for now but we will be here when life returns as our children may need the fun of theatre more than ever, after such strange and unsettling times. We too are working from home, and probably like many of you, we are trying to write/speak/video call whilst kids are arguing in the other room or forever needing food! But when all this is over we look forward to offering you once again our great selection of shows. A few highlights will be Calamity Climate Change – set in a lighthouse but on all things environmental, The Bunsen Towers Mystery a science whodunnit on materials, and the beautiful interactive sing-a-long musicals of The Reluctant Dragon and Pinocchio. We must organise one great big British street party when this is all over, until then keep well, best wishes x

My Best Friend Forever

“My Best Friend Forever” is our anti-bullying and emotional well-being production for UK primary schools.

The show is suitable for reception to year 6. In a Freaky Friday meets Groundhog Day style we take an up-to-date look at the theme of bullying, including emotional well-being and healthy friendships. Claire finds herself waking up each day changing places with someone she has not been very kind to.

All our shows are fun and engaging, performed by professional actors with wonderful scenery and costumes. With pop songs, interaction and lots of laughter our show will be an effective springboard for the topics of friendships and understanding ours and others emotions and in an age appropriate way we will encourage the audience to think about how they treat others and recognise their emotions, most especially empathy.

Pinocchio

This magical production is one of a series of participation musicals created especially for primary level and designed to help and encourage children with their literacy.

The show needs the help of the whole audience and is preceded by a rehearsal workshop in which some children are chosen to take part alongside the professionals, while the remaining audience are rehearsed into the chorus songs.

“Bringing a story to life is the best way to encourage our children to read”.

When Geppetto carves Pinocchio something magical begins to happen. As the wooden boy takes shape he starts to come to life, learns to walk and talk and takes on all the qualities of a mischievous little boy. Pinocchio may be disobedient but he’s also inquisitive and brave and has the most amazing adventures. What Pinocchio desires the most though is to become a real living boy – but will he?

The show requires the help of everyone watching. During the preceding fun half hour rehearsal workshop some children are chosen and rehearsed into their parts while the rest of the audience are taught the chorus songs. After a short pause the actors and children are costumed and the show, lasting 1 hour, runs seamlessly with everyone taking part as rehearsed.

Rehearsal/Workshop: 30 mins. Short pause. Performance: 1 hour.

Image Musical Theatre: Participation Musicals for KS1 and KS2


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.

Oscar Wilde’s short story ‘The Selfish Giant’ is a beautiful and moving tale. 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 (£395+vat).

Rehearsal / Workshop 30 mins — Interval — Performance 1 hour.
