Blunderbus is a professional theatre company with charitable status, established
in 1998. For over 18 years we have been creating magical theatrical experiences for
children and their families. We play to 200,000 children each year, touring to theatres,
arts centres, outdoor venues, festivals and schools across the UK, Europe and Internationally.
Quite simply, we LOVE working with children!
Our shows are based on bestselling children's books and adaptations of our own original
stories. Over the past 18 years, we have adapted many much-loved published stories
and brought them to the stage, including The Owl who Was Afraid of the Dark, Giraffes
Can't Dance, The Rainbow Fish, Elmer, Hugless Douglas, The Selfish Crocodile & How to
Catch a Star.
We employ a small, but dedicated team of professional actors, designers, puppet-
makers, writers, directors and musicians to create our beautiful shows. Our team
work 'in-house' to lovingly write, design, build, make, paint, sew and stitch every
element for each show. Everything you see on this website has been made by us,
for you to enjoy.
Our work would not be conceivable without the dedication of our
core team, along with the freelance artists who work together to
weave the magic for each new project. Blunderbus is very much
a team effort, and every member of team contributes to the
success of our company.
