We are exceptionally honoured and excited to be part of this year's #LetMeIn Festival at the Rose Theatre Kingston.
This is a festival presenting work by, for, and young people with a range of physical, learning and sensory needs. Now in its 6th year, the Rose's inclusive festival will involve our personal heroes: Oily Cart, as well as Turtle Key Arts, and students from the The Orpheus Centre.
We will be performing both 'Little Meerkat's Big Panic' and 'You, The Loo, And Nappy-Nappy Noos', as well as creating a bespoke sensory tour of the theatre!
Things don't really get much more awesome than this!

Crabby went live...and SOLD OUT!
We're just home from our first run with Crabby at Brighton Fringe, beautifully hosted by The Warren.
This was our fourth year at the Fringe, and the fourth new show we've premiered...but, this is the first time we SOLD OUT! One more show to go on the 3rd of June and there are only 2 tickets left for that at the moment.
The feedback has been amazing, and we had such a fun time. One parent left us a 5 star review on our Facebook page:
"My little one and I thoroughly enjoyed the Crabby show - it is pitched perfectly for the age group and the message definitely sank in - my little one is still talking about how Crabby ‘uses his magic words’ when he feels angry. The performers did such a thoughtful job of putting together a productionthat is entertaining, educational, interactive, and sensory. It’s a very inclusive show with makaton signing, and it goes at a gentle but engaging pace. The children were mesmerised and felt safe to join in, and really enjoyed all the inventive props and songs. There’s a sensory play session straight afterwards to help the little ones release energy and process what they’ve just seen. The whole show is so well thought out and delivered. We’ll make sure we catch as many Collars and Cuffs shows as we can in the future. Thanks for bringing us a really fun and helpful show!"
We know we've been shortlisted for the Primary Times Children's Choice Award for both Crabby and Nappy Noos. We now have to wait until the final day of the Fringe to find out the result.
So, Crabby works! And it's now officially available for bookings!
