Storymakers is Cast's monthly session for under fives and their carers run in partnership with Mudpie Arts.

Each session is based on a wonderful picture book. The session begins with half an hour of craft followed by forty five minutes of drama and creative play. Here the story is explored through drama games, role-play, music, dance, puppets, multi-sensory play, storytelling and lots of dressing up!

The children take on characters. They are encouraged to express their own ideas and make the story their own. Only at the end of every session do we reveal and share the picture book.

The aims of Storymakers are to encourage book sharing and creative play for all. We  demonstrate ideas that can be enjoyed at home. We wish to empower young children to find their voice and to let their imagination fly!


£3.50 children (adults go free)

Buggy Park

We've got the perfect spot to park your pram or buggy outside the theatre underneath Cast's main stairwell. While the buggie park is in full view of our staff, please note that they are left at the owner's risk and any valuables should be kept with you at all times.

Food and Drink

Our Cafe Bar stocks Fruit Shoot and snacks for children including biscuits, healthy snacks and bottled water. 

The Latecomer's Booths

If you need to leave the auditorium with your child and for whatever reason do not wish to re-enter during the show, you may watch the remainder of the performance from the Latecomer's Booths which is an area at the back of the stalls with a window into the auditorium. 

Cast has lots of opportunities throughout the year for families through a variety of Family Friendly events and classes. Click here for more information.
