OUR SPECIAL REPORT
Everything you ever wanted to know about
our first show: Space Rebel Princess
_______________


PRINCESS
TO TAKE HISTORICAL
FIRST FLIGHT!




A fearless young princess raised for royalty but not for rocketry, dreams of becoming an astronaut.

FROM HERE TO THE STARS!

Outsmarting the confines of her palace upbringing, and with the help of the audience, the princess must break free of the fear that holds her back, and boldly go where no princess has gone before!






Inspired by the likes of the first British astronaut, Helen Sharman, engineers and flight controllers throughout the world of space science, who have ignited curiosity and passion in successive generations of young people to pursue science and engineering, Space Rebel Princess seeks to empower young people and to inspire in them a life-long love of stories.


UPPITY CHUCK NEEDS YOU!

• For children 5-9 and families
• Collaborative with audience participation:
- Decipher alien messages!
- Assemble a giant rocket!
- Float with the princess
in zero gravity!

Children get involved, helping the princess to achieve her mission as she constructs her first ever rocketship in a land where reading and writing has been outlawed…

A FANTASTIC VOYAGE!

This is a small-scale work focuses on innovative audience engagement and adventure. Space Rebel Princess combines clowning, physical theatre, dance, craft and poetry to create a piece of joyful, genre-bending performance.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces

Runtime: Approximately 25 minutes

Projects



    Space Rebel Princess is a brilliant little show for children
    with a childlike playfulness at its heart. A great experience for those that took part and fabulously entertaining for those that watched.
      Genuinely playful genius.”
