A theatre company formed specifically to work with children (4 to 11 years) to encourage them to take a greater interest in books. BCT was founded 1989 and has performed to nearly half a million people in festivals,schools and theatres throughout the UK. Booster Cushion Theatre work with large pop-up books, some up to 3m tall and others concertina to be 5m wide. Booster Cushion Theatre for Children has 8 productions that tour all year around from the Shetlands down to Jersey via Holyhead and Gt. Yarmouth. All our performances are comical alternative traditional tales. Such as: ‘Alan in Wonderland and the 3 Goats Plus…’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood and Friends’, a solo version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ and a sporting version of ‘Hansel, Gretal and You…Who?’ Please see our web site for many pictures, references and reviews. All Booster’s productions are solo performances using mime, voice and some sign language. They involve a high level of audience participation on the part of the children and are designed to foster a feeling of strong involvement in the event by drawing the audience in. Each show is completely portable, can be performed inside or outside as the technical requirements are minimal and can play to audiences of 20 to 200 plus. Director Philip Sherman is one of the founder members of the company and has worked in theatre for 30 years producing devised performances with many associates.
