There’s a whole host of reasons…
Theatre Hullabaloo is the North East’s specialist producer of theatre for children and young people and we are funded by Arts Council England to create work that tours to theatres and schools. We have an established reputation as one of the UK’s leading companies of its type and work with specialist creative teams, which often include advisory teachers or child development experts, who ensure that the work we make is suited to its target age range.
“The children were enthralled, it really grabbed their attention and appealed to their imagination”
Durham University Day Nursey
As well as touring our own shows and workshops into schools, we also support schools to access other brilliant children’s theatre in the region through our TakeOff Festival where we offer integrated travel and ticket offers to ensure that smaller rural schools are able to access cultural opportunities.
“The show was super, but the main impact of the day was the amazing hospitality … it felt warm, welcoming and a wonderful place to learn”
Northwood Primary School
All our shows are supported by comprehensive learning resources which include pre and post show lesson plans and are developed with our advisory teachers to ensure our visit is properly integrated into the National Curriculum.
Theatre Hullabaloo works closely with a number of partner schools with whom we develop new work and support a creative curriculum.
We also support schools to deliver Artsmark and Arts Award.
