Theatre is a brilliant way to inspire children long after the curtain has come down. Besides providing a great source of entertainment, it unlocks their imagination and fuels their curiosity and creativity, which are great skills for the complex world we live in.
In these challenging times, we want to keep the magic alive for families by bringing you lots of theatre-based fun to keep you entertained. In the coming months, we will be adding games, quizzes, storytimes, colouring sheets, free educational resources and more, so please share with your friends and follow along. Please also check out our online calendar below to find out where you can enjoy family-friendly theatre online.
The theatres may be dark temporarily, but that won’t stop us from leaving the light on for our theatre fans.
