  • Mission statement

    Theatre Hullabaloo is a pioneering organisation that makes, tours & promotes theatre for young audiences, aged 0 – 16 years old, because we believe that they are the most important audience of all. We create pioneering work that puts the young person at the heart of the creative process. Our work is driven by the belief that young audiences have an entitlement to theatre of the highest quality that inspires the imagination and challenges the mind.

    Theatre Hullabaloo delivers its mission through the following strands of work; -

    • We commission and produce new theatre experiences for young audiences, bringing artists and children together as creative collaborators.
    • We tour our work regionally, nationally and internationally.
    • We produce an annual festival of theatre for children and young people that reaches regional audiences and also serves as a development opportunity for professionals working in the field.
    • We develop academic research as part of our artistic process that influences the development of artistic practice and the debate around the place of creativity in childhood.
    • We support artists to develop work for young audiences and their own knowledge and practice.
    • We support the programming and family offer of other venues in our region.
    • We programme a diverse range of performance and participatory arts activity designed for children and families
