The show that YOU make up.

The Great Big Story Mix Up: actors in assorted costumes singing and dancing

The Great Big Story Mix Up is an improvised play for children and adults that puts the audience in the centre of the action:

  • choose characters, costumes and props
  • select story lines, settings and scenes
  • blow the Horn of Song and the Trumpet of Dance
  • watch as our troupe of storytellers create never-before-seen fairy tales, right in front of your eyes

As well as being performed in person, there is an online version of The Great Big Story Mix Up, just as live, just as interactive, and just as silly, featuring drawings from children in the audience turned into animated sets!

Suitable for everyone aged three and over.

What a TOTAL JOY!
