Final Big Call for Little Feet 2016

Final Big Call for Little Feet 2016

York Theatre Royal and tutti frutti are to host their fourth Little Feet festival of children’s theatre in June 2016.  Every two years York Theatre Royal turns its whole building over to 0-12 year olds, introducing them to the magic of theatre.  There is a final call for artists and companies to programme into the festival.

Little Feet completely transforms the theatre building, turning the foyer into a beautiful and imaginative play area.  A special menu of festival food and free craft activities are provided, plus a host of performances, interactive experiences and workshops for babies and children of all ages and their families.  Little Feet 2016 will take place in the newly renovated York Theatre Royal front of house and auditorium spaces.

In order to create another highly successful festival, York Theatre Royal is looking for unusual and innovative, high quality work for children.  Large and small scale spaces are available for performances or workshops, plus a small outdoor area.  There is no restriction on the size, age or art form of any company interested in being part of the festival.  They must however be touring work during the week commencing Monday 6 June 2016 and have not already sent details of the tour.

Juliet Forster, Associate Director at York Theatre Royal said:

Often, theatre for young people is less regarded than theatre made for adults, but this festival aims to change that perception.  This is a chance for families to see the best children’s theatre touring the UK and we are looking for the very best of this talent.  Little Feet will transform our newly redeveloped venue into a welcoming space for families to enjoy, whether coming to see a show, take part in an activity or just to spend time in a fun and child-friendly venue in the city centre.

All relevant information should be sent before Wednesday 16 September to juliet.forster@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk with the subject line Little Feet.
