Looking to bring theatre to your school this festive season or for International Storytelling Week?


The Whitaker have teamed up once again with Goofus Theatre and Yan Tan Tethera to bring you a brand-new family-friendly show, Moonsmile.

Moonsmile is a non-verbal theatre performance for KS1 and KS2 learners told through puppetry, play, music, and mask. Learners will also get chance to meet the performers after the performance too.

Our story starts with a lonely museum Caretaker, who loses something quite dear to him. In his quest to retrieve what was lost, he finds himself on the moon where he meets the strange but loveable Moonlings.

Through a ritual of trust and friendship, the Moonlings help the Caretaker restore what was lost to him. Taking this gift back to Earth, the Caretaker rediscovers all that was hidden!

We have availability to bring Moonsmile to schools and learning environments w/c 5 December 2022 and w/c 31 January 2023 (International Storytelling Week)

Please get in touch with Jane to discuss pricing and dates:
