What harm could come from climbing an unnaturally large beanstalk..?
Find out in this imaginative retelling of the classic story.
Roll up, roll up and come and see the 'Spriggins & Mum Circus & Curiosities (est. 1792)'...
This original and inventive production is packed full of fun and magic.
Puppetry and silliness combine with classic storytelling in this 30 minute show written especially for an EYFS and KS1 audience. The show is followed by a 30 minute drama workshop for all of the audience to participate in.
If we are unable to visit in person for any reason we have a high-quality filmed version of the show that can be streamed.
"Engaging actors who interacted well with our young audience. Set was bright and eye-catching and props were used well.
Slightly different spin on the traditional tale but still recognisable to the children. All classes were enthralled by the performance. Workshop was fun and active.
The actors had the children's attention throughout and offered support to those who needed it. An enjoyable afternoon."
Julie Ward, St Mary's CE Primary School

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the fun show and workshop you put on for us at Lambrook.
The children and the teachers had a great time! The children talked about it extensively and animatedly during lunchtime.
When I asked if they had a favourite part, they had big smiles on their faces and said 'all of it!'. Thank you!"
Nicky Davies, Lambrook School
