Established in the 1980s, the company is deeply rooted in the community and region and has evolved to create a programme of work that comprises of productions, workshops and outreach projects.   Our mission is to create vital, vigorous, and exciting theatre with, by and for children, from all backgrounds. We provide an opportunity for young people to realise their imaginative and creative potential by participating fully as theatre makers, encouraging a lifetime interest in the arts.
We give children a fun experience in a safe, positive, and creative environment, promoting self-awareness and self-confidence through the process of arts based drama.  

The Right Environment

We provide children with opportunities to develop communication, concentration, and teamwork skills through participation

We consistently aim to encourage children to engage their imagination through the invention of characters, sounds, creatures, and stories based on their own ideas. We strive to continue to involve the participants in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the projects.
