Family Microsite Launched
As part of our commitment to working with children and families, we are thrilled to announce that we have today launched an area of our website which is just for children.
On the site you can find lots of activities and videos to do and watch together as a family, many of which are presented by our very special duo Mack and Mickey.
One of the main features of the site is step-by-step instructions from Mack and Mickey on how to build a toy puppet theatre using materials you probably have lying around at home. We’ve also provided downloadable ‘cut out and colour’ decorations for the theatre, as well as a backdrop and puppets from The Snowman so that your family can re-enact their favourite scenes from the show – or invent their own new ones!
Over the coming months, we’ll be adding even more activities and videos to the site, including Mack and Mickey meeting various members of REP staff to find out about how we make theatre, and giving your children ideas about how to enhance their own toy theatre productions using the same techniques as we use here at The REP.
Children can also leave their comments throughout the site, and send in pictures or videos of their creations, to share with other children.
We hope that you’ll enjoy using the site – do let us know what you think of it either in the comments section below or using the ‘Do you like this page’ buttons throughout the site.
