Schools Bookings

At Half Moon, we have a wide range of performances on throughout the year which are available for schools bookings. These include performances that take place at our theatre but also shows teachers can book to come into school.

Most of the dates for shows in our theatre are set by the start of the academic year, but we can sometimes offer additional performances of one of our Half Moon presents shows at the theatre in response to requests from schools.

Interested in a specific performance at a specific time of year? Take a look at the list below and contact us to find out more.

All tickets are £7 each.

DUST
(Reception-Year 4)
When: Wed 18 – Fri 20, Mon 23, Thu 19 & Fri 20 Mar
Times: Wed 18 Mar – 1.30pm and 4.30pm | Thu 19, Fri 20, Mon 23, Thu 26 & Fri 27 Mar – 10.30am & 1.30pm

When Little Titch and her scruffy rucksack arrive at the giant, pink house it is not what she expected – a blanket of thick grey dust covers everything in sight and it is wild and overgrown. Her new home is cold and unwelcoming until she meets Nelly, a flamboyant and loveable hoarder. Together the pair discover they have more in common than they first thought and that friendship can heal hidden wounds.

Written by acclaimed award-winning children’s author Laura Dockrill (Darcy Burdock book series and Big Bones), Dust uses exciting puppetry and exquisite poetic language to explore a heartfelt story about love, loss, identity and memory. With haunting music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this striking and emotional new play is a joyous reminder about just how playful the world can be.

Dust is a Half Moon and Z-Arts co-production: an exciting collaboration by the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company and Manchester’s unique and award-winning venue for children and families.

Performance running time: 50 minutes
Tickets: £7 each (adults go free based on ratios required for the age group*)

Rubba-dubba-giggle, rubba-dubba-laugh, there’s magic to be found in the Big Red Bath!

It’s the end of a busy day and it is almost time for bed, and Ben and Bella are in the bath. Splish! Splosh! Splash! Bubbles burst and bubbles rise and a frothy feast of animals jump right in to join in the fun. Come with us on a bubbly, barmy bath time adventure around the world and home again celebrating all things bath time.

Adapted from Julia Jarman and Adrian Reynolds’ popular children’s picture book, this quirky, vibrant and humorous tale for 2-5 year olds features music by Evergreen, an alternative indie-electro-pop trio who bring a blend of folk melodies, electro beats and vocal harmonies

Big Red Bath is an exciting collaboration between Full House Theatre and Half Moon that will appeal to families as it blends music, song and humorous character based performances in a unique new take on this well-loved book.
