Formed in 2007, we are now entering our 10th year of performing as Hobgoblin Theatre Company!
In that time we have performed to hundreds of thousands of children in hundreds of schools all over the UK (and beyond!) and our repertoire has grown from the 2 plays we started with to over 20 shows that we now offer all year round (and the new shows that we add each Xmas).
With a firm focus on educational values we are considered an invaluable resource by teachers across the UK looking to inspire and enthuse their children.
Learn a little more about this theatre in education company and the wonderful people who run it!
Hobgoblin Theatre Company in a nutshell.
We formed Hobgoblin Theatre Company out of a desire to do something worthwhile with our training and experience while still enjoying the excitement of live performance.
Each of us had professional training as well as experience working in Theatre in Education before we formed Hobgoblin and, added to the things we have learnt over the past 9 years, we believe that we can meet any challenge that we are presented with.
We write all of our own material from scratch to ensure that it meets our high standards. We also make all of our costumes, props and sets and we take great pleasure in performing our shows and running our drama workshops in schools and elsewhere.
There really is no more honest audience than an audience of children and we take great pride in the fact that the response we get from them is so positive.
With more new shows and workshop ideas on the cards we're looking forward to the next 10 years and beyond...!
MEET THE TEAM...
Theatre is a team effort and, as we have grown, we have been privileged to work with a lot of very talented and creative actors. As well as the many actors that we have at peak times we are very excited to have these wonderful people working with us for 2016/17...
This year Felix O'Brien joined company director James Anthony and Hobgoblin regular Lianne Fairey to complete one of our two full time teams. They've been performing together since September and we couldn't be happier with the great work that they're producing.
As well as their hard work in the UK these guys had a great week in Dusseldorf, Germany earlier this year.
Welcome back Luke Callan, Emily Eastley and Drew Bryant. Emily, Luke and Drew are with us for the 2016/17 season having already spent 6 months touring with us last year - they must be suckers for punishment!
The team are excited to once again supplement their touring of the UK with a visit to Oman later in the year!
