Boo To A Goose Theatre presents

Storm in a Teapot

Please note that Storm in a Teapot is taking place in the Clifford Room at the Barnfield Theatre.

Boo To A Goose’s latest show, Storm in a Teapot, has been created for children aged 4 – 8 years and their families. This new show will help develop an understanding of how stories are made and, at the same time, encourage imagination and expression and challenge stereotypes.

Grandma Kettlepot is causes a stir at the local book club when she decides to write her own story, but needs the children’s help!

This accessible, interactive and multi-sensory show, with puppetry and original music, will have everyone laughing and singing along with the characters. We encourage you to listen to our songs before the show for maximum participatory fun!

Made with support from Arts Council England and Libraries Unlimited.

Audience feedback, Westhill Primary School

‘The children really enjoyed the songs. We did listen to them beforehand so I know that with my class in particular, they were really excited when they heard you singing the songs. The children all really enjoyed the show and this was clear from their laughter. It was just the right length of running time too. Thank you for a lovely show.’

Audience feedback, Sidmouth Primary School
