Number of shows



We are a collective of artists based in Plymouth, Devon led by Producer Helen Bovey, dedicated to creating high-quality professional theatre (and theatrical experiences) for primary-aged children! We believe theatre is for EVERYONE and seek to break down barriers which can limit access to the arts including cost, location and language. We make professional theatre for a variety of ages (including Under 5’s and 8-11s) taking it to both theatrical spaces such as theatres and arts centres and non-theatrical spaces including community centres, libraries, art galleries museums and more! We tour across the UK, not just in the beautiful county of Devon. We also run Above & Beyond Children’s Theatre Festival- taking place across 3 days, in 3 different library spaces in Plymouth. Come and join our community, ask us a question, see our work or just browse. You can contact us on if you’d like to hear more. Discussion Posts from Old Website: The Elves & The Shoemaker is back!
