The BIG Performance

05 July

BIG are The Yard’s littlest theatre-makers, aged 4-6 years and from Mossbourne Riverside Academy. Working with artists Nick Cassenbaum and Olly Hawes, they’ve made a performance to share with you.


‘we should all stand and bow at the beginning’

‘I want to be an ant that saves a family’

‘We want to sit where the audience can’t see us and sing’

‘I would like to learn how to act like a tiger’


Come and see them in a show about making a show.

A show about telling a story.
