"There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour"

Using live performers, puppetry, music and multimedia, this production brings something a little different to this much loved classic.

 Following the success of this production in 2015, we will be touring it again throughout December 2016. Using a great mix of high energy, truthful performances, audience interaction and out right silliness to give their Christmas Carol a theatre experience to be remembered.

Suitable for all ages, this family show will get your Christmas off to a bang!

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando. When she is then banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy, calling herself Ganymede. She, her cousin Celia and jester Touchstone, travel to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Will Rosalind ever marry her Orlando? Will the Duke change his ways?

This wonderful Shakespeare comedy about life, love, betrayal, faith and death will be filled with Folksy's touch of bold characters, audience interaction and plenty of laughs. A perfect tribute to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

George was very happy being the scruffiest giant in town. But one day, when he sees a shop stocking giant-size clothes, he decides it's time to update his image. With smart clothes, George is a new man. However, as he journeys home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help. George's kind heart and generosity take him on an adventure where he discovers that it's not how you look that's important but how you feel.

Folksy's musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson's wonderful book will be filled with puppetry, colourful characters and songs, that will have you clapping and singing along!
