A new show for audiences aged 3 – 6 years and their adults.
BigKidLittleKid is a quirky, playful, energetic and engaging look at being on your own and being with someone else; and how size can really matter…..
Are you a big kid or a little kid?  Or both?

On Saturday 5th Oct. at 3pm we will stage a relaxed performance.



Created by Anna Newell, described by The Guardian as ‘a hero of children’s theatre’ and by the Irish Times as an ‘early years theatre pioneer’ with music by David Goodall (with whom Anna has created shows for early years audiences that have been seen on 5 continents and off-Broadway).  BigKidLittleKid promises to delight and enchant its audiences with its unique take on the complicated world of sibling rivalry.

2019 full production funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon in partnership with The Civic, Tallaght; the Mermaid, Bray and Draiocht, Blanchardstown. (Initial R&D funding by the Pavilion, Dun Laoghaire & the Mermaid, Bray).

Additional notes:
BigKidLittleKid is completely wordless and therefore very suitable for audiences which include children who don’t have English as their first language.
