Craig has been invited to his best friend’s Birthday Party.

There is an invitation to read, presents to wrap, cakes to buy and a house to find.

Who will explain the rules of Musical Chairs?

Will there be enough balloons?


Using music, toys and far too much wrapping paper, Shoofly Theatre have created a funny and charming journey into the world of numbers for Nursery, Reception,Year One children and their families.


Shoofly Theatre are actor/director Craig Edwards and designer Katie Sykes.

They are highly experienced theatre makers and have been involved in a number of critically acclaimed family productions including:


Travelling Light: How Cold My Toes, Boing! Sammy & The Snow Leopard, Three Kings.

Tobacco Factory: Cinderella, 101 Dalmations, The Ugly Duckling, The Borrowers.

Bristol Old Vic: Treasure Island, Sleeping Beauty, Jane Eyre.

The Egg: Around The World In 80 Days, Taking Flight.

Scamp Theatre: Stick Man, Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales.

Living Spit: Craig has directed all their shows!

" How to shepherd a gaggle of restlessly excitable three and four year olds through the joys of elementary number play? Bristol company Shoofly Theatre ( aka comic actor Craig Edwards and director/designer Katie Sykes, both regulars on the Bristol/Bath children's theatre landscape) look to have cracked it in this wide-eyed, exuberant little gem. 

There's a sense of energy and wonder at the world that feels utterly genuine- and which should inspire a love of numbers, and of theatre, in audiences of all ages." *****

Unit 5 Queens Square Clevedon BS21 6HX

Theatre Shop is in the pedestrianised square behind B&M Bargains, tucked between Superdrug and Boots.

We recommend parking in B&M Bargains car park and  walking across Queens Square where you'll find Theatre Shop.


Theatre Orchard and Living Spit met in 2012. Their eyes locked across a crowded room and they decided to get together and turn an empty shop into a theatre.

They named their bundle of joy “Theatre Shop”. It’s 5 years old this year and is now run by The Theatre Shop CIC, a brand new not-for-profit company.
