Hello from Big Up!

On the 14th May, we were really excited to be bringing the 5-star production of Big Up! to our TP audiences. Unfortunately with the closure of our home due to Covid-19, we were unable to stage the show.

However, the team have sent you a message about bringing Big Up! to your home with lots of fun activity ideas to get your beatbox juices flowing…

About the show:

Big Up!

for children aged 4 plus and everybody who looks after them.

What happens when a Beatboxer, a Singer and a Puppeteer arrive on stage but nothing is ready?  No set, no instruments, no puppets. No rules?

Come and watch as they create a world full of joy and chaos, where objects come to life and everything is possible.   

BIG UP! celebrates the power of music, the power of play and the power of our imagination. A perfect show for little people who want to be Big, and Big people who … just might have forgotten how to play.

“Magical puppetry, beatboxing and singing” Remote Goat ★★★★★ 

The show was created in 2019 in collaboration with 20 Stories High, It was developed through research with young adult parents, young carers and their children, from working class and culturally diverse backgrounds.
