Location

  • We have an issue in this country in terms of working class people having access to activities like writing and plays and music. Working class people are under-resourced when it comes to the arts and we need to rebalance that

    — Sir Lenny Henry

  • WOW - they all LOVED the show!! My son was beside himself with joy about it and he said it was better than any panto he's ever seen!!

    — - Parent PTA St Saviour's Primary

  • One of our parents spoke about how important this opportunity was for her and her child ‚Äì they really enjoyed the panto and said otherwise they might not have had the opportunity to do something together.

Situation

The diminishing arts provision in state schools means many of children do not have access to arts participation. Access to plays and music may be limited due to economic or cultural reasons denying them the opportunity to explore their own creativity or take part in our shared cultural heritage.

Solution

Pantomimes are often our first experience of theatre but unfortunately the high price of tickets means many children miss out on this tradition. We will bring the experience of live performance into local schools at a fraction of the cost of a theatre visit. The production will have all the traditional hallmarks of a pantomime, but still feel relevant and contemporary for the intended audience of 7-11 year olds. Interactive elements will include the children playing the dwarves.
