A hip hop and puppetry theatre show for 3-6 year olds and everybody that looks after them
No matter whether you are Big or Small, the world is full of rules. Sometimes we make our own rules, sometimes we don’t know the rules and sometimes we want to play by different rules.
What happens when a Beatboxer, a Singer and a Puppeteer arrive on stage but nothing is ready for them? No set, no instruments, no puppets. No rules.
Come and watch as they create a world full of joy and chaos, where objects come to life and everything is possible.
BIG UP! is perfect for little people who want to be Big, and Big people who… just might have forgotten how to play.
After the success of The Broke N Beat Collective, the award-winning Theatre-Rites join with us again, this time to create BIG UP! a show especially for 3-6 year olds and the people who look after them.
For 3 to 6 year olds and everybody that looks after them.

“A captivating live theatre experience for little ones, and a reminder to the rest of us of how much fun there is to be had when you let your imagination run wild.”
“A performance that was funnier, more engaging and more inventive than virtually any theatre production aimed at young children I’ve ever seen.”
