“These photos are from Rockley Public School where we had the pleasure of working with the whole school - just eight students! The students gave us certificates and little trinkets to say thank you for visiting their school. They were the kindest, most gracious bunch.
One of my favourite parts of touring is visiting schools to do workshops. I adore meeting all the children in person before they come to see the show. I think it allows the show to feel more real for them, like they are watching their new friend up on stage. I think that connection and intimacy is so important and so special and really elevates the excitement of seeing the show for them! We get some amazing, hilarious and clever kids coming out of their shells in these workshops. It’s so special when a teacher says “so-and-so never usually gets up and gets involved like that!”, and we get those comments all the time. Being able to create a safe space for children, to inspire their imagination, and play creativity is absolutely precious to me and I feel so lucky to have met each one of them.”
