It may be Spring Term, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve drawn a line under Christmas…not just yet anyway!
What a wonderful Bigfoot Christmas we have had! Our SELL OUT Pantomimes ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Rapunzel’ brought some Christmas magic to over 90 schools across London and the North East – oh yes they did! We were absolutely thrilled with all the incredible responses from children and their teachers we have had flooding in throughout December and January; here’s what they told us:
‘The perfect mix of hilarious, energetic and engaging. High energy, in your face, fantastic, festive fun!’ (St Marys Catholic School, Newcastle)
‘This was an excellent performance to watch just before Christmas. A lovely way to bring the whole school together in fun. It was lovely to be able to introduce the idea of pantomime and live theatre to some of our children who have not previously had the experience.’ (Langley Park Primary, Durham)
‘A fun 21st century style pantomime.A great performance using a twist of modern day songs to engage the audience.’ (Fellside Community Primary, Gateshead)
‘A wonderful, energetic experience for children to enjoy. The performance had the children captivated from start to finish.’ (London Primary)
‘A really fun, lively performance which the children could really engage with – and the children loved being able to join in so many of the songs!’ (Crown Lane Primary School)
‘The best ever. The show was fun, modern and everyone wanted to watch it. It was amazing to see the children of all ages really belly laughing at what was going on!’ (Christchurch Primary School)
‘They thought it was great… Oh no they didn’t! OH YES THEY DID! 😜Fun, energetic and interactive! A lovely start to the festive season.’ (Walnut Tree Walk Primary)
And it wasn’t just Jack and Rapunzel that were making their way across the country; Pip and Effie our Christmas Elves visited over 100 schools and pre-school settings across the country with their various wonderful adventures! Why not have a look and see our Elves in action HERE:
