HORATIO! And Hamlet


Horatio is trapped in a never-ending Zoom call with his best friend, Hamlet - the world's most depressing man.  Can Horatio cheer Hamlet up?  Can he convince him not to kill himself (or anybody else)?  And will Hamlet ever let him go to sleep?

Written by Nicholas Osmond (Alice, A Christmas Carol) and performed by Nicholas Osmond and Ryan Duncan (Alice, The Tempest), HORATIO! And Hamlet is a hilarious dark comedy about friendship, death and coping with lockdown? very, very badly!

Creation Home Delivery

Autumn Term 2020


Our sell-out Creation Home Delivery programme is back from 7 September with 12 new stories to explore across the term for ages 5-19. Led live over Zoom by a professional actor, each week our members embark on a digital adventure where we bring some of literature's best-loved stories to life as well as introduce performance, theatre-making and storytelling skills. To keep the creativity alive all week we also send out weekly storytelling packages in the post too, full of extra activities, information and creative challenges to be enjoyed at home.

Our sessions offer a wide range of benefits including creativity, confidence-building, literacy and general life skills as well as being a mask-free after-school activity that children across schools and bubbles can enjoy with each other in real time.

What's more, we're offering FREE TASTER SESSIONS across all our groups this term, and as we're all online our members can join in from anywhere in the country (or world!) so there's really nothing stopping you from giving it a go!

You can book your free taster session by calling our Box Office on 01865 766266 and you can find more information at our website: https://www.creationtheatre.co.uk/education/creation-home-delivery/

"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! By far the best use of technology for an online activity. Thoughtful, creative, engaging, educational, inspiring? and the little packages each week were the icing on the cake. Kids loved it, I got an hour of peace (or more!) and smiles all round. Bravo."
