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 at 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.



Coming up at Half Moon:

SnowWhiteandRoseRed-square-300SNOW WHITE ROSE RED BEAR BROWN
(Reception – Year 4)

When: Thu 22 & Fri 23 Nov
Times: 10.30am & 1.30pm

Snow White and Rose Red – sisters, twins, best friends – have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood. Not as worldly wise as their Mother would have liked, they are nonetheless, kind, caring and sometimes a little over enthusiastic in their deeds!

When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to?

All questions will be untangled in this new show from the Woods of Widdershins, using puppets, storytelling, original music and a fantastical fairytale forest.

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

A Theatre of Widdershins production


ThreeKings-sqaure-loresTHREE KINGS
(Year 1 – Year 4)
When: Thu 6 – Fri 7 Dec
Times: Thu 6, 1.30pm & 4.30pm; Fri 7, 10.30am & 1.30pm

A sparkling family show to light up the winter evenings.

“Have you ever seen such a night as this? So many stars, so many stories, which one is yours?”

Three weary travellers from far off lands meet by chance as night approaches, all looking to the darkening skies. As shadows draw in, they eventually overcome their suspicions of each other and exchange stories; stories of love, stories of loss, stories of kings.

Where have they come from? Where are they going and what is so special about this night? How many stars are there in the sky? Is there such a thing as chance or do the constellations have a plan mapped out for each and every one of us?

Travelling Light brings its inventive and fresh twist to a classic tale. Three Kings fuses storytelling, song and dance and puppetry in a sparkling show about finding out where you belong, overcoming your differences and listening to the secret stargazer in each of us.

This production has curriculum links with RE, history, British Values and PSE. A schools pack will be available from October 2018.

Performance running time: 55 minutes
Tickets: £7 each (adults go free based on ratios required for the age group*)
