 Environmental shows for schools

Environmental education resources for children are in demand and this environmental theatre show for schools brings home the immediate threat of global warming, pollution and greenhouse gasses, and importantly, their causes. How we all contribute to our carbon footprint and how we can learn about energy conservation and help reduce pollution of all types.

Although educational, this is a show that children will enjoy that carries a subtle message so that they do not think of it as an educational show, although this does not stop them learning



Established 1988



Environmental Show for Schools, Theatres, and Events


An environmental show that deals with the causes of Global Warming for schools, theatres and children's events

”I thought the Curse of the Grabbers was educationally relevant and simply but expertly performed. More importantly the young audience were totally engaged and clearly enjoyed this thought provoking piece of work. I recommend it highly”

J C Struthers - Director of the Institute of Contemporary and Interdisciplinary Arts,  University of Bath

The Grabbers are coming, and the places where birds sing, wild flowers grow, and children play, are disappearing fast. Grabbers destroy them to build factories - factories that make things we don’t need, that turn food into junk, and that destroy the environment.

 And the Grabbers are coming to a space near you!

 ‘The Curse of the Grabbers’ aims to encourage awareness that excessive and unnecessary consumption is a cause of rapidly diminishing resources, loss of the countryside, global warming, and the resulting pollution of our water, air, and land.

 A blend of storytelling, pantomime, slapstick, and theatre, The Curse of the Grabbers  places our environmental crisis into an immediate context that is relevant to young children.

 The Curse of the Grabbers:

  • Is a great comic show with a message relevant to our time

  • Tells children what they as individuals can do to help

  • Is suitable for children aged 4 - 9 and teachers and parents

  • Addresses the causes of pollution and consumption

  • Has minimal technical requirements

  • Can be performed to large audiences 200-300+

  • And of course its very funny indeed!

‘I haven’t laughed so much for years, and the children absolutely loved it!’  

- Parent

‘Absolutely brilliant - every child should see this show. It’s a rare treat to see something that is so funny and makes a serious point’        - teacher
