Somebody's going to get wet, will it be one of the teachers......?

My first impresion of it was good but as it carried on my impresion grew stronger and stronger till my impresion was brilliant - I think it was the best show ever

I use simple props - It's amazing how a walking stick, a chair and a suitcase can come to life

Laughter in Education 

"The children were utterly engaged in the performance and brilliantly entertained. As a teacher of 20 years I thought it was phenomenal - certainly one of the best things we have ever had in the school. It concluded our science week superbly, highlighting what science is all about - asking questions! Pitched perfectly - you understand what children need. I'm a fan"

CG- Science Coordinator

I've been performing interactive children's theatre for over twenty years: theatres,  schools, libraries, village halls, touring in Europe, parties, police stations, arts festivals, holiday camps,  heritage events....

I've had loads of fun and enjoy making people laugh, and I think laughter is good for everyone, but I wanted to use it to help children learn. I tried devising 'educational shows' but they weren't funny, and it's taken me nearly twenty years to devise how to make children laugh and learn at the same time.

Footprints in the Sky has been seen by well in excess of 12,000 children in The West Country, and they all had this much fun and learned a lot about science.

 Extracts from Environmental show The Curse of the Grabbers and a short interview with Mike Rawlinson were recently broadcast on ITV as part of a six part series hosted by John Nettles. This show recently toured Devon village halls as part of the Villages in Action touring scheme, and has been performed in the internationally famous Spiegel Tent.

"Thank you. The children thought the show was brilliant and were all talking about it as they left"

" A wonderful fusion of performer and audience"  Independent Review

'I learnt that asking things can help you even if your asking a teacher. I learnt science isnít as boring as I thought. It could be funny sometimes! Itís a cool lesson now.í   Abi

"A really entertaining performance - the children were learning without even knowing it     -  Teacher

I thought the show was the best in the world. The bit I liked best was most of it, but the stick was the funniest of all. I remember all of it. I got a tape in my head.   Sarenta age 10
