Using Makaton signing and props, our highly engaging, immersive shows encourage participants to be a part of the story.

Using Makaton signing and props, our highly engaging, immersive shows encourage school children to be a part of the magic of theatre. We invite everyone to join in the interactive moments by exploring our multi-sensory props, dressing up or singing along to our catchy tunes.

Shows are accompanied by sensory moments (using visual, tactile or sound elements) to help engage children and bring the story to life.

We offer a safe environment for the children to try out drama and immerse themselves in the adventure as it unfolds.

A collection of BIG Little Tales, sensory and accessible to all.

In the World of Grimm, some of the biggest champions are often the littlest. Join our thumb size heroes on their larger than life adventures. We’ll re-imagine the stories of The Elves and the Shoemaker and Tom Thumb using chants, rhythms, puppetry, repetition and song. We’ll perform in and around the audience drawing you into an enchanting fairy tale world.

The show is brought to life using Makaton signing, puppets and fun sensory props. Pre-recorded VOCAs (big Macs) will be available for those with communication needs to join in the fun.

Suitable for all including Visual/Hearing/Sensory Impairments, Autism, PMLD, SLD. Great for neurotypical siblings.

“A really lovely show for the children to enjoy as part of the topic. You were so inclusive and this meant the children were confident and at ease!” (Palatine Primary School)

“The show encouraged individuals who have never got up on stage before. On a rainy Tuesday afternoon you have both brought a lot of happiness, great interaction with our users.” (Leatherhead Link Day service)

“It was such a lovely performance and the children loved being a part of it. Its always fun and engaging and you really think about how to integrate the audience. We love how when you come you take into account their differences and work with their abilities”. [The Children’s Trust]

Chicken Circus 2023 School Reviews

“We loved having Head2Head Sensory Theatre come to visit West Hill for two performances of Chicken Circus. Chicken Circus was absolutely brilliant and just so much fun – just what the children needed (and staff). The actors and the company really understood the needs of our children and the whole day was so enjoyable for all as a result. The children were so entertained and the performances were just amazing, keeping everyone engaged and captivated throughout. We were able to prepare the children for the visit with the comprehensive resource pack that was sent well in advance, which was brilliant. It was so informative and pitched exactly at the right level to ensure it was accessible for all. We have already booked our Christmas pantomime and are eagerly awaiting some much welcome fun at the end of another term. Thank you Head2Head Sensory Theatre!”
