…AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We were delighted this year to visit thousands of children across the country with our ‘Clumsiest Elf’ and ‘Littlest Elf’ EYFS shows, as well as our KS1- KS3 pantomime of ‘Pinocchio’…and what a time we had!
Without a doubt, this was our busiest and best year to date. Across the North and South of England, teams of Bigfooters travelled from school to school bringing music, dancing, squeals of laughter, and plenty of Christmas cheer to all!
Our 30 minute Early Years show captivated 4 and 5 year olds as they sought to help Effie Brightbuttons uncover where Santa had lost his keys in order to ‘save’ Christmas. Jingling all the way through songs and tricks and candy sticks, all 50 schools we visited over a three week period were enthralled and impressed…we can’t do better than that can we?! Or can we…
Boasting a repertoire of six well known hits, all adapted and delivered by four teams of three actors, and pitched against the backdrop of one of the most magical stories ever told, Pinocchio delighted from first word to last note. With something for all ages, and teachers too, our panto appeared to be just the ticket for you!
So let’s hear what the crowd thought…
BEAVERS COMMUNITY PRIMARY ON PINOCCHIO:
“The three actors we had for the day were amazing. It was lovely to chat with them prior to the performance and feed off their energy. They were entertaining, humorous, energetic and provided both adults and children with lots of laughs. A fun, energetic performance, which entertained all our children for an hour…no easy task! The costumes, scenery and songs were wonderful!”
BANDON HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL ON PINOCCHIO:
“Staff and children absolutely loved the pantomime – we could hear the laughter throughout the school building.This is the second time we have booked the pantomime and will be booking again next year for certain. ”
CAPEL MANOR PRIMARY SCHOOL ON PINOCCHIO:
“My staff reported that this was the best panto they had seen- they especially enjoyed the more modern songs! Well done and thank you – please contact the office to arrange next years booking.”
SHAFTSBURY PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL ON PINOCCHIO:
“A great interactive show, true to the tale of Pinocchio with a surprise or two along the way. ”
ST SWITHUN WELLS PRIMARY SCHOOL ON ELF:
“A fantastic show, with an excellent balance of song, interaction and storytelling. So engaging and age appropriate. Loved by all the children and staff. Thank you!”
DRAYTON GREEN PRIMARY SCHOOL ON ELF:
“It was absolutely brilliant. From beginning to end, the children (and adults) were completely engrossed. Considering it was a one women show, she was able to fully sustain the attention of the youngest children in our school – Nursery, Reception and Year 1, as well as our children in our ARP setting who have additional needs. We’ll be booking again straight away again for next year, and your EYFS storytelling projects too. Thank you!”
LARMENIER AND SACRED HEART PRIMARY ON ELF:
“A really lovely and well pitched performance with an easy to follow script that the nursery children grasped well and remembered. Lovely touch to use a song they would all know.”
