2016-17 Primary tours now available to book

We are pleased to announce that our Language Alive foundation and primary tours for 2016/17 are now available to book.

Some of our most popular tours are making a return, such as our early years programmes Roll Up! Roll Up! and Things That Go Bump along with Rainforest Symphony (KS1), and Hansel & Gretel and Stargazing for KS2.

New programmes for 2016/17 include The Greeks and Buried History. In The Greeks, children will explore the significance of theatre in Ancient Greece and perform alongside Niko as the chorus in the play. Buried History is being developed in partnership with Birmingham Museum, home to part of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest cache of Anglo Saxon gold ever found.

Each programme supports specific curriculum subjects such as English, History and Science as well as a range of development areas within SMSC such as Citizenship.

All bookings include a teacher preview, to find out more about the programme, and a wide range of online resources for use in class.

Public Performances

First Stages at the REP

We regularly present versions of our touring programmes in the Door as part of the REP’s theatre for families programme, First Stages. It’s been a great opportunity for us to take our work to a wider audience outside of schools.

Next up is Hansel and Gretel on 21st May at 11.30am and 2pm.

Join Tattershawl, an eccentric traveller guide who will take you on a journey to unexpected destinations and dark secrets. This exciting reworking of the children’s classic uses our trademark participatory approach where the children will take the role of different characters from within the story, eventually helping to make a decision that pushes sibling rivalry to its limits.

On September 17th, Malcolm will be appearing in Uncle’s Story Shop. As part of the REP’s new autumn programme, tickets aren’t available yet, so follow us on Facebook or Twitter get get updates when they go on sale.
