New theatre course for families

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 21 April 2008

London-based theatre company Pip Productions is launching a new theatre project for children and parents this autumn.

Pip Theatre is a weekly course held over 12 weeks in term-time in which children aged 6+ and their parents can take part together in creating a piece of theatre, leading up to a performance at the end of the course. Run by Henriette Baker, Artistic Director of Pip Productions, the aim of the course is to adapt, rehearse and perform a well-loved children’s story in an unusual and interesting place. This year’s production will be an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Elephant’s Child.

Baker commented: “I think anyone can enjoy being on stage even if it seems a fearsome challenge – in the rehearsal room nothing is impossible and nothing is ever a mistake. Each project is sure to leave unforgettable family memories. In our busy lives a few very strong, unforgettable experiences matter as much as all the time in the world for parents and children.”

Participants can join one of three separate courses being held on weekday evenings this autumn in locations throughout Southwark, Kensington and Chelsea – The Inn On The Green near Portobello Road on Mondays, the Nolias Gallery in Southwark on Wednesdays and Westbourne Studios near Westbourne Park on Thursdays. Courses kick off from 10 September onwards.

The 12-week term-time course costs £190 for one parent and one child, £240 for one parent and two or more children and £300 for two parents and two or more children. For further information and to book a place visit www.pipproductions.org or call 07841 651 200.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
