The Little Things Theatre

Big Topics for Little Ones

 

The Little Things is an emerging children’s theatre company based in Bristol. We toured our first play, A Dog’s Brexit, last year and are performing our second play, A Worm’s Home, at festivals this summer.

We aim to create performances that feed the imagination, nourish the soul and inspire the mind, presenting current topics to young audiences in a clear and exciting way.

Our mission is to:

Feed the imagination

We want to create theatre that is engaging, exciting and educational – and most of all, fun. We want to expose the magic of live performance to fuel children’s natural creativity and imagination.

Nourish the soul

We are big believers in the importance of theatre for children. We want to ensure that theatre specifically for children continues to be made, that enriches their lives.

Inspire the mind

We aim to encourage children to think and question, creating work that will excite their curiosity and spark interest in topics they may not otherwise encounter.

Engage with current topics

By simplifying big topics, we want to ensure that everyone feels they can be involved and part of the discussion. We want to encourage a dialogue between generations and entertain both children and their parents alike.

Our current project

A Worm’s Home

We have been creating a brand new show to be performed at family festivals this summer – A Worm’s Home! William the Worm is very happy in his flowerpot, munching on soil and watching the world go by… until one day a big nasty storm knocks over his home and leaves him stranded!

We join this little Worm on his journey, as he meets some roly poly Woodlice, an excellently camouflaged Stick Insect and a bossy Landlady-bird. We invite children and their families to get involved, with actions, songs and dressing up, to help the little Worm find a new home, overcome obstacles and made new friends.

“Theatre feeds the heart and nourishes the soul and enlarges the spirit … children need the arts as much as they need fresh air.”
