Each year Bigfoot’s team of professional performers bring wonderful tales of comedy, tragedy, romance, and adventure to life for primary schools. This year we are delighted to be reprising our popular personalised film version of our pantomime LIVE from the Royal Hippodrome Theatre. In collaboration with Smokescreen Visuals, we know that this year’s panto of ‘CINDERELLA’ will once again provide schools and homes across the UK with access to a fantastic theatre performance full of Christmas magic! PLUS schools can still take part in our elf-ish escapades by booking our LIVE ‘THE GREEDIEST ELF’ show, or ‘THE LITTLEST CHRISTMAS ELF RETURNS’ via ZOOM, for EYFS children to enjoy throughout December.
This year’s festive offering from Bigfoot is set to be the biggest and best yet!
CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME; CINDERELLA
This year we have partnered yet again with The Royal Hippodrome Theatre and top tech film company Smokescreen Visuals to bring you your own unique, personalised recording of our 2021pantomime, ‘CINDERELLA’. The recording is yours to keep and can be watched as many times as you like, at times to suit you.
In an ideal world, we would have been back in schools performing ‘Cinderella’ live. But, after much discussion, we have decided that touring a show this winter comes with too much of a risk of late notice cancellations and that was simply not a risk that we want any school to have to take. Therefore, we have decided that offering a filmed performance is the only way to GUARANTEE that there will be no last minute cancellations.
But, this is not your average filmed performance! Purchasing a recording of ‘Cinderella’ means that your school will become the star of the show – with interactive elements and a few special tricks up our sleeve, we will work with you to create a one of a kind performance that staff and students will absolutely love! But, don’t just take our word for it, take a look at what last year’s schools had to say:
“Absolutely amazing! So well thought out with excellent personalised features which really made it feel like you were here”
“It was a joy to watch and the children thought it was great. I, for one, was amazed at the quality and the presentation of the show, which was outstanding. The actors were fab, as was the way it was filmed. The interaction with the children was amazing. 10 out of 10 for it all”.
“The children loved the personalisation – they couldn’t believe that you could “see” them through the TV screen and knew what our school was called!”
Cinderella is already shaping up to be bigger and better than last year’s show and you can watch a trailer here:
In order to have the recordings ready for schools by the 1st December, we do have a cap on the number of schools who can participate. Last year we completely sold out, so don’t delay! Our online booking form can be found here:
(If you can’t open the form, please use a non-school networked computer or smart phone/device)
Love the idea but don’t have the budget? No problem. We also offer schools a chance to book the ‘original’ version of the show – that means with no personalised or unique elements – for a reduced rate of £150 plus VAT.
½ & 1 Form Entry Schools: £295 + VAT

THE GREEDIEST CHRISTMAS ELF- LIVE!
With such incredible feedback these past four years, we are delighted to present a reworking or brand new Christmas show ‘The Greediest Christmas Elf’ for 2021!
Join us in Santa’s workshop for a truly heart-warming tale! You’ll meet elves, hear stories and be invited to dance along as the magic of Christmas is brought to life through charming puppetry and interactive drama.
Each session is 30 minutes in length and can be delivered for up to 120 children. A hall or similar space is required for large ‘year group bubbles’, with a classroom being adequate for
smaller ‘one class bubbles’.
*Please note that this experience has been redesigned for 2021 to be Covid compliant and safe for all, whilst still ensuring your EYFS children have as much fun with us as possible!
