WHERE DID ALL THE MONEY GO?

I'm griping again!
But not without just cause.
I feel sorry for the kids when I hear we just cannot afford it. Our budget has been slashed to the bone. We are even asking parents to make contributions; anything will do, pens, paper to write on, or even toilet paper.
Is this the way to run a country?
Is there nobody in high places who recognises that education matters?
Oh well, I guess not!
So, let's move on.
How about a party? We have just the show for your 2 to 8 year olds, and mum and dad, granny and the rest will all love it too.
I am talking about "The Gingerbread Man".
We have been performing this for nigh on 20 years and GBM is as young and athletic as ever trying to escape his home in search of somewhere better, but eventually realising he had the best home in the world and, with the help of the children getting back safe and sound.
Until the next time, I will leave you with some photos.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL PRODUCER, AUTHOR AND DIRECTOR

"Who could say we are boring?

We are in our twentieth year and still the ideas keep flowing. The trick is to keep each production fresh and alive! Theatre is a living, breathing entity and every actor who works for us brings something new to the cooking pot; whether it be humour, movement, vocal skills, fresh characterisation, or any number of other skills. Our plays are still loved today and we have never felt the need to drop any, as they each provide something unique. Repeat bookings have proved our worth over the years.

I am proud to say we not only perform ten plays in traditional repertory style and conduct various and bespoke workshops nationally, mainly in schools and theatre venues but, with the success of our own children's book, Billy Beware! we are proud to be providing 'Storytelling' as a new addition to our repertoire. Performances and readings are most often in schools, but theatre venues, libraries, village halls, community centres and even living rooms all feature.

Drama Tuition is another new addition to our repertoire. We have had enquiries for LAMDA Examinations too and these are welcomed and encouraged

As we at Aesop's Theatre love a party, we are delighted to be writing a bespoke play for a surprise 60th birthday party in June..

Get in touch with us if you want something a little bit different. We welcome new challenges.
