Aesop's Touring Theatre Company specialises in Theatre in Education, touring Schools, Art Centres and Theatres nationally throughout the year with plays and workshops specifically written and designed for Nursery, Infant and Junior age groups.
In addition we perform regularly at children's parties where the emphasis is very much on fun and entertainment. There is always a good deal of music, songs and participation and interaction with the children. Our four nursery and infant productions "Gingerbread Man", "Hare & Tortoise", "Billy Beware!" and "Ugly Duckling" all fit the bill perfectly.
The Company aims to educate young audiences through the powers of entertainment and imagination whilst, at the same time, encouraging children to question and think for themselves.
A high standard of professionalism is maintained by employing experienced actors with specialist skills and considerable enthusiasm. All actors and Company personnel have enhanced CRB checks to work with children and vulnerable adults.
All productions are linked to the National Curriculum, and our nursery and infant plays carry a moral or message.
Behind the scenes too, professionals in costumes, puppet and mask-making and scenery painting have been chosen specifically for their talents and genuine interest in educational theatre.
We hope you enjoy our work as much as we do.

Following the success of our most recent production "TIMELINE" we are pleased to offer "HISTORY WORKSHOPS"
Choose any period in HISTORY that you are currently studying and we will conduct one or more 70 minutes DRAMA WORKSHOPS with each of your classes. To set the scene, and create the atmosphere, an actor in period costume will introduce the subject. Read more about our History Workshops.
