Who is is for?
This show in a box is recommended for children aged 5 – 10 and their families.
It is not recommended for children under 4 as the box contains sharp objects (scissors and a pencil sharpener).
With original art-work, sound design and music, The Seashell Stew brings a little bit of theatre magic into your home this winter. Snuggled inside a ‘show box’, you will find everything you need to create your own festive family show experience, from pencils and puppets to your very own storyteller.
WHAT FAMILIES THOUGHT
It was a fun, interactive, quirky and thought provoking way of engaging with the arts remotely during Covid.
It is a really lovely programme, it helped us reconnect with each other and listen to each other and work together towards a common goal. I think it also helped us adults to slow down a bit and for the children to experience the value in helping others-it works to make everyone feel happier, not just the person who receives!
I like to try and weave a bit of magic into my daughter’s world. She was fully engaged from the start and the experience was both exciting and thought provoking."
