The famous writer Ima Star is in trouble! Her brand new ‘Traditional Fairytales’ book is being released today – but somebody has mixed up her stories! Cinderella has become Cinderelephant! The Big Bad Wolf is now a Big GOOD Wolf! And the poor Gingerbread Man is a plodding pudding! Help us untangle these twisted tales before it is too late!
ZOOM TO THE MOON!
Beam up to the library to witness the most Amazing Book in the Universe! Witness Alien Slime-Bot climb through the pages and take us on a far out adventure! Travel to outer space! Learn about the planets! Meet the star of the Solar System!

THE FANTASTIC FUNFAIR!
Roll up! Roll up! Step this way! It’s going to be a wonderful day! Our quirky carnival has the world’s wackiest performers, plus irregular rides, silly sideshows and special celebrities!

WE’RE ALL SUPERHEROES!
A superhero is coming to visit today! But this hero is unlike any you’ve ever met! This cape-wearing crusader will teach us that we all have superpowers, everyone is special in their own way, and boys and girls are equally strong and capable. Discover your superpower and learn how to be a super friend, too!
With the buzz of the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games in the air, celebrate sports of all sorts in this high energy show! Suitable for sports fans of any age!

A TOY STORY!
Enter the magic toy box and meet some of your favourite toys! Includes the story of a very special and determined Little Red Engine who teaches us to always help those in need.
WE’RE GOING TO THE ZOO!
Come along for a trip to the zoo! We’ll see a big tiger and a cute orangutan too! Slither with the snakes, bounce with the kangaroos – you might even see a snappy crocodile or two! Step this way everyone, please – but watch out for the cheeky monkeys!
THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
’Twas the night before Christmas – and far from quiet. A cheeky newcomer was causing a riot! It is Christmas Eve and the Chief Elf has his curly toes in a tangle. A mischievous new Elf has arrived, trailing chaos behind her! Now the Reindeer are rowdy, the Christmas Tree is testy, the Sleigh is shabby and the children’s toys are cracked! Will the new Elf cause a catastrophe? Or will she remind us of the true spirit of Christmas? Featuring the well loved story “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”
All our shows – apart from Book Week (from August) and Christmas (from November) are available throughout the year.
VIRTUAL SCHOOL HOLIDAY SHOWS!
Carp Productions are also offering Eight Virtual Performances for throughout 2021! We have a range of shows on lots of topics popular with children. Our virtual shows run for around 35 minutes and still include all the elements of a Carp Productions show you’d see at a library (with a few additional funny sound effects!) We chat to the kids and keep them involved as though they are in the room. At the end of the show we suggest craft activities which are relevant to the theme of the show and as always, encourage them to read books and even act out their favourite stories at home, just as we are doing.
