Excitement levels are running high in the London Museum of Egyptology.
The world famous Amulet of Tutankhamun is on display for the first time.
But wait, it's been... stolen!?
Join Professor Pinkerton and his team of expert Egyptologists as they try to find the amulet and unravel the Curse of the Mummy before it is too late...
"This performance not only reinforced the facts about Ancient Egyptians, but also encouraged the children to take a role in developing their learning through drama.
The characters were fun and very memorable, especially Francois Baguette!
We really enjoy the Hobgoblin Theatre team coming to our school - they are always so professional and flexible. Thank you."
Katy Brown, Claygate Primary School
"A very enjoyable experience for pupils and teachers!
Children were well engaged throughout. The idea of breaking up the acting with little thought groups was effective and well in tune with how children cope with longer periods of sitting.
Hopefully see you again!"
Amy Brow, Davington Primary School
Costumes were great and accents & the interaction with the children was very good. When divided into 3 groups the children were enthusiastic and had lots of interesting ideas to share with you.
Loved the way you got lots of facts across and at the same time got all of the children to laugh and remember it all.
We will very much try to get you back at some point next year. Thank you."
Niamh Quigley, Ashton House School
This interactive play blends action and discussion to fully immerse the audience in the story. As well as watching the play the children also get the chance to discuss the action they are watching in 'interactions' with the actors throughout the show.
"The play had the children really engaged and was appropriate to their level. Acting was very good and made content accessible to all learners.
We really liked how there were bursts to brainstorm what had been learnt at various points in the performance.
The day was well organised, actors were professional and really good with the children. Punctual and with good timekeeping
We will be booking with you again soon!"
F McAlpine, Minet Junior School
What sort of music do Mummies listen to...?
"I have seen this show 3 times, we book them every year!
This year James, Lianne and Felix were amazing. The performance covers good links to our Egyptian topic and they involve the children through questioning and splitting into smaller groups to re-cap what has happened so far. It's a great way for the children to relay all the information/facts they have learnt.
They are able to control the children well and it is clear they are passionate about their jobs. The drama workshop really lets the children explore different areas of drama.
Thank you, see you next year!"
Aimee Whitby, Beavers Primary School
"Play - Brilliant! Had the children enthralled and laughing. Loved the informative bits and the interactive elements.
Workshop - Absolutely fantastic. Children really enjoyed it - loved all the drama techniques. Gave us ideas for further activities.

Really well performed; engaging, educational and fun for all the Year 5's.
A professional cast who told the story brilliantly.
Vanessa Lucioni, Coombe Hill Junior School
"Another fantastic performance and drama workshop. We were so impressed with how focused and engaged the children were and with the standard of work they produced.
Thanks, once again."
Lucy Rose, St Margaret's Junior School
"The children and staff both thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The acting was of a high standard and was pitched well for the age of the children.
Your team was here with plenty of time and there was lots of great humour!
We will definitely book again. Many thanks!"

The actors were amazing, playing each role so well and with lots of enthusiasm and accuracy.
The workshop worked incredibly well with the play and the children gained a lot from it.
We would recommend this play and the company to anyone!"

If you have never experienced theatre in education before (and, more specifically, Hobgoblin Theatre Company) then you will have no idea of the dramatic impact that the experience can have on childrens' understanding of, and passion for, a particular topic.
Hopefully these comments that other teachers have made will prompt you to give us a call!
Let us help to inspire your children.
