We are the UK's leading theatre for young audiences and we make shows that challenge, motivate and inspire. After a year of closure due to the pandemic, we're excited to announce our new season of live stage shows for pupils up to age 13.
Celebrate Christmas with this new show based on the much-loved books written by Julian Clary. The Bolds are just like you and me. They’re clever. They live in Teddington. They love to laugh. One slight difference… They’re hyenas. With live music, songs and adventures, come and meet this funny, furry family as they journey from the wilds of Africa to the London 'burbs in search of a cooler climate, orderly queues and supermarkets. This brand new show is guaranteed to have your pupils laughing like a bunch of hyenas this Christmas. Tickets from £7.50. Find out more.
An adventure-filled modern adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece. Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video camera, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive show. Originally programmed for March 2020, we're delighted to present this show in 2022 following its cancellation due to the pandemic. Tickets from £7.50 Find out more.

Unfortunately our foyer isn’t large enough for us to allow school groups to reserve an area for lunch, but you are welcome to eat packed lunches if there is space on the day. If it’s warm, there are plenty of outdoor spaces nearby at The Scoop or at Potters Fields with great views of the Thames and Tower Bridge.
