The Flying Pizza Theatre Company was set up in 1996 by Mark Wastell and Sandy Campbell to provide inspiring, high quality live theatre for children.
Using skilled professional actors and our own creative design team we adapt classic children’s stories for schools and theatres in fresh and imaginative ways.
We bring the magic of theatre to you with ingenious writing, a host of colourful characters, exciting acting, original music, song, dance, hand-made costumes, masks, puppetry and audience participation to create an unforgettable experience for all. When possible we use elements of the original text so that children can hear the author’s own voice for themselves. Every production is unique and we never mass produce anything.
Past shows have included: Scrooge, Treasure Island, Wind in the Willows, Hansel & Gretel, Three Tales from Grimm, Pinocchio, The Snow Queen, Hobbity Tales, The Jungle Book, Lucky the Polar Bear and Alice in Wonderland. We also provide Storytelling performances and workshops in Drama, Mask-making and Puppet-making.
In the twenty years since the company was set up, we are proud that over half a million children have enjoyed our shows. A measure of our success, we believe, is the ever increasing number of schools inviting us back each year. Fifteen of our loyal customers have now been enjoying our shows for over ten years.
