Theatre Lovett is theatre that makes you think. Whether you are a child, an adult who remembers what it was like to be a child, or anyone curious and open-minded who wishes to engage with theatre that can amuse, involve and sometimes scare, Theatre Lovett offers you theatre as adventure.
We take risks: we are playfully dangerous. We might ask your opinions in performance, and sometimes we act on them in ways you don’t expect.
We love music, physical theatre, clowning, absurd comedy and poignant tragedy, and we believe that children and young audiences respond to and recognise the best when it is shared with them, without patronising, stereotyping or belittling our audience’s experience and innocence.
We rejoice in our recent discoveries that children appreciate drama that takes us and them to the edge – of good and evil, of joy and sorrow, and of knowing that sometimes even adults are walking a tightrope of uncertainty above an uncontrollable, unknown, unsafe world.
Sharing a Theatre Lovett theatre piece empowers children and their adults to embrace life, with all its light and shadow. We will show you the dark colours of the rainbow – and you and your child will Lovett!
