Half Moon Theatre at Home
Enjoy world-class theatre whilst we’re closed.
Half Moon Theatre is offering families access to some of its content online. A selection of recent much-loved productions for young people will be made available free, for everyone over the coming weeks, as well as access to backstage interviews and useful information about virtual things to do.
Productions to be made available include the award-winning What Once Was Ours, a co-production with Zest Theatre for ages 12+ and adults, the award-nominated Boy’s Don’t, a Half Moon Presents and Papertale production for ages 8-12 and adults, plus our co-productions with Tangled Feet of Butterflies (ages 3-8) and Need a Little Help (ages 2-7).
New this week:
What Once Was Ours (ages 12+ and adults)
An immersive show about identity and belonging. Katie and Callum couldn’t be any more distant and disconnected: different heritage, different cities, different opportunities. Except there is one thing they’ll always have in common: Dad. What happens when Callum suddenly turns up in desperate need of help?
What Once Was Ours won Best Production for Young People Aged 13+ at the 2018 Offies, the Off West End Theatre Awards. A Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production.
Butterflies (ages 3-8)
An uplifting tale of friendship and courage as three friends embark on an adventure to chase their butterflies away. Based on research into children’s anxiety, Butterflies will whisk you away on a journey of what makes you anxious and what we can do to understand, accept or overcome these feelings. A Tangled Feet and Half Moon co-production.
Boys Don’t (ages 8-12 and adults)
What’s a boy to do? From the playground to the classroom, from home to the uncharted waters of online, boys learn that displaying their feelings is a no-no. But what happens to emotion that can’t be let out? Boys Don’t was nominated for Best Production for Young People aged 8+ at the Off West End Awards 2017.
A Half Moon Presents and Papertale production in association with Apples and Snakes (South East). This production was filmed and edited by Brighton Metropolitan College in partnership with Brighton Dome during the Brighton Festival.
Need a Little Help (ages 2-7)
Based on the experiences of young carers, this moving and uplifting show explores what it means to look after someone else when you are young. In a playful and immersive space, the young audience help the performers look after each other, stepping into the shoes of young carers. A Tangled Feet and Half Moon co-production.
Available from 15 April.
More coming soon…
