|Formed in 1987 in Barking, Essex,The Barking Dog Theatre Company produces shows specifically written
and designed for children (And their families)
Over the last thirty years we have produced dozens of shows which we have performed to thousands
of children and families. So far we have toured to schools and theatres in mainly in the South of
England but also in Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Russia.
Each year we produce four new shows for the UK and Ireland;-
One for the under sixes featuring "Eddy The Teddy",
A book related show for 4 - 9 year olds
A show for 7 - 11 year olds, history based.
A pantomime, with two versions, one specially designed for under sixes
and a more general version for children up to the age of 11.
(We produce special shows for English learners, contact us about those)
All our shows last for approximately 45 minutes and are performed by
two actors. One actor generally plays the main character while the other actor plays everyone
he/she meets during our story.
We usually use puppets, mime and music. We always use lots of audience participation with some
children coming up on stage to help and the whole audience being involved too.
We bring all the costumes and simple scenery all you need to
provide is the audience!
