FEATURED SHOWS FOR EARLY 2023!
THE T-REX TEA PARTY!
“Join us for a Dino-Mazing T-Rex Tea Party! Sharpen your teeth, practice your roars, let’s all pretend to be dinosaurs!”
Our crowd-pleasing Dinosaur show is back for 2023, incorporating all the fun and magic of the prehistoric world, with opportunities for children to join in the performance and develop skills such as characterisation and speaking before an audience. It’s laugh-out-loud fun for everyone! Join us for a Dinosaur Hunt, dance to dinosaur songs, and take part in a story about a very loud and cheeky Pterodactyl!
“Welcome to the Hullaballoo Zoo! There are so many things to see and do! You can visit lots of amazing animals, including exotic birds, friendly bears and Gertie the Orangutan, who is always giggling. Mr I M Cuckoo is here to show you around… but something’s wrong. The animals are sad, and they need something to cheer them up. Can you help make them smile again?”
“Zoo Party!” is a fun introduction to the animals of the world, as we take a tour of the Hullaballoo Zoo to cheer up all the animals. There are reptiles, jungle animals, Australian bush animals, birds, bears and more! There are lots of dress-ups and parts to play for children from the audiences, songs to sing and dance to, funny jokes, and a story to join in. There’s even some magic! It’s the perfect start to the summer for children aged 3-10, and a wonderful way to celebrate all the diverse animals of the world.
VIRTUAL SCHOOL HOLIDAY SHOWS!
Carp Productions are also offering Eight Virtual Performances for throughout 2023! 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.
