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
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

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.
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:
