tutti frutti productions


tutti frutti delights children with meaningful and imaginative theatre for children aged 3+ and their families.

Our productions are specially commissioned new plays or adaptations of children’s books. They include original, often live music together with different art forms like puppetry, dance, and movement.

We tour nationally to small scale venues including studio theatres, arts centres, village halls, rural touring schemes and primary schools undertaking around 240 performances a year. We also tour internationally, regularly visiting Hong Kong, Singapore and recently America.

Recent productions include:
- The Boy Who Cried Wolf by Mike Kenny
"A beautiful show was performed by three distinctive and talented performers, who had the audience enthralled from the moment you entered the Studio"- York Mumbler

- Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine by Evan Placey
"It’s an hour’s jolly fun for all, but also emotionally enabling for its very young target audience"- The Review’s Hub

Future productions include:
- Sweet Dreams by Mike Kenny
Join Ivy and Bun Bun as they try to find a place to sleep that is just right. With sublime music, songs and beautiful design, tutti frutti invites you to their new show made of dreams.

-The Glass Slippers by Emma Reeves
With a top team of actor musicians, real music, dancing and inventive design, tutti frutti will re-imagine this classic story, to make you cry, make you chuckle and to inspire your real self to shine through!

We also support and nurture artists in creating work for children and run the biennial Little Feet Festival of Children’s Theatre with York Theatre Royal.
