Actors (and mums), Janet and Cassie, believe drama, storytelling and craft are incredibly beneficial for children’s development, so they’ve put them together and created an original party experience for your child! The adventures for their parties are based on themes that children love and are all totally original. They involve interactive play, sensory storytelling, games, problem-solving and craft that all tie into the story and help save the day! They can deliver a party in any venue so whether it’s at your home, in a hall or in a field, they’re happy to accommodate.

ONLINE PARTIES! Online parties are a fun and engaging way to get together with friends and family. You might fancy a themed party like Superheroes, Spy or even the Magical Kingdom, party centred around a favourite book or school topic or how about a good old quiz with the whole family? Prices start at £55 for one host, £80 for two 🧚‍♀️💃👸🤴. Find all the details here and below.

They have a whole selection of their own original stories based on different themes (see below). They are also very happy to create a totally bespoke piece of theatre for special occasions. The key element for them is to create opportunities for children to work together and have fun; and if it’s a birthday, for that child to feel extra special.

Story Craft Theatre are now also offering live performances for special gatherings!! Please drop them a line for more information and to discuss. 

Party Themes

Superhero (Craft- Superhero wristbands): Evil Doctor Sneaky is causing trouble in the city. We need a team of ultimate Superheros to help save the day. Come and join us for brain and brawn training before we fly off for one epic adventure. . . and who knows, we might even bump into some other Superheroes along the way!

Under the Sea (Craft - Funky fish): Take a big breath and put on your flippers because we are going on a deep-sea rescue mission to help a special crab get his shell back. This is a truly wonderful quest, where you get to meet an actual mermaid and dance with a very giggly Octopus. We’ll be wobbling like jelly-fish, barking like dogfish and puffing up like the best of any blow-fish on our journey.

Fairytale Kingdom (Craft- Dragon Masks): The Great Malarkle Sparkle Kingdom needs your help!!! King Huffle’s evil Witchy sister is trying to take over the land. A special potion must be made to protect everyone. Visit a Unicorn, a laughing Knight and a disco dancing Dragon on your quest for the magical ingredients. Hurry before the Kingdom becomes Sproutropolis!!!

Space (Craft - Alien headbands) - We’ll be blasting off to a galaxy far, far away to protect alien life form from a very mischievous comet. Hold on tight, as we’ll be travelling at lightning speeds, shooting through wormholes and dodging asteroid showers. This party is full of cool space facts and is out of this world!

Dinosaur (Craft – Dino puppets): We’re heading back to a time when Pterodactyls flew through the air, Triceratops munched on leaves, and the ground shook each time a T-Rex passed. This prehistoric adventure is full of singing, puppetry and dinosaurs that are larger than life.

Pirates and Mermaid (Craft – Pirate Hats): Ooh Arr, Me Hearties! There’s no time to be scrubbing the deck on this adventure! Captain No-Beard’s treasure has been stolen and Pirates, we need your help to find it! We’ll be heading out to sea to meet a real-life mermaid, swimming with a whale and trying to find the ever-important X.

Spy (Craft - Spy Disguise): There has been a break-in at Spy HQ!! The mastermind behind such cunning can be none other than Professor V. Help us follow the clues and discover the Professor’s hideout before top secret, very important, really keep it under your hat, information gets out. This adventure is all about working as a team, testing your knowledge and keeping your eyes and ears open . . . as well as some silly dancing!

Fairy and Unicorn (Craft - Magic Wands) - It’s time to travel to a very magical garden where all sorts of wonders await you. The Fairy Queen needs your help as a great storm has made everything topsy turvy; the Ladybird has lost her spots, the Frog has lost his bounce, the Unicorn needs cheering up and the Elves can’t be found anywhere! Time to sprinkle some fairy dust and make some magic.

Not the theme your child wants? No worries . . .they can create a totally bespoke party for your child’s birthday based on their specific interests.
