We write and produce all of our plays ourselves to ensure that they directly support the National Curriculum, are fun and original and that they meet our high standards.


Each of our plays springs to life through vibrant characters and engaging stories, interactive discussion and drama workshops and has a huge effect on pupil interaction, engagement with the topic and ongoing attainment.

Whether you're looking for fun Fairy Tales, interactive KS2 History plays, Numeracy, Literacy, Science shows or Christmas productions, then Hobgoblin is the Theatre in Education company for you!

Hobgoblin Theatre Company is firmly established as one of the UK's best touring theatre in education companies. We are committed to bringing entertaining and original educational theatre into your school - we tour nationally so take a look at our shows to see what we can bring to YOUR school to enhance your curriculum.


With decades of combined experience of Theatre in Education and Drama we are perfectly placed to deliver effective and inspirational shows and workshops for your children.

The question that most teachers ask us is "What do you actually do?"


Our Twitter feed should help to answer that...


...we are also, in light of covid-19, producing digital copies of our shows to offer schools that we are unable to visit in person. Here's the trailer for our History shows and resources...

We now have 16 filmed shows available for you to stream to your children in school and at home. EYFS/KS1 Traditional Tales, KS2 History and Whole School Literacy are all covered so get in touch to see what we can do for you.


We also have "The History of Maths" Numeracy show coming soon to our digital portfolio - watch this space!

We are hoping, and planning, for a return to some semblance of normality by the summer term and, as part of this planning, we are going to run a tour of our new show, "Alice in Wonderland".


Only a fraction of the schools that would normally watch our new shows at Christmas got to experience it this year so we want to celebrate the (hoped for) return to normality with this fun and energetic show for the whole school.


Contact us for more details...

As a special offer you can choose one show from each column for just £150 - this gives you access to both shows, with unlimited streaming, until the end of the Spring Term!

Are you looking for an exciting way to engage the children in your next topic..?
