Jump to it!

Claire is so busy playing her computer game that she forgets about her real life. She forgets to do her school work, forgets how much she likes to read books, and even forgets to be kind to one of her closest friends. And then in one terrifying moment, she realises that she has been sucked into the unfamiliar world of the computer game she is playing, where everything is very different....

This sensational musical adventure is written to encourage children to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner. It features four popular books which you can read and explore with the children:

  • Mr Magnolia by Quentin Blake
  • The Hero of Little Street by Gregory Rogers
  • Prince Cinders by Babette Cole
  • How to Be a Pirate by Cressida Cowell from the How to Train Your Dragon series.

Cleo Copperpot's Adventures with Hercules

Our show takes children on a journey through time to explore the Labours of Hercules as well as the art of storytelling in Ancient Greece.

Cleo Copperpot is a budding young archaeologist. In her experience everything you dig up tells a story. Her dog Carter, chief digger, presents her with a dirty old sandal. But it’s not any old sandal, it has magical wings and it suddenly transports Cleo to Ancient Greece!
 
She is up for an adventure but she wants to be sure she can go home afterwards. The only way back to 2016 is through a magical portal on Mount Olympus. Cleo quickly spots a problem - no human can set foot on Mount Olympus and no God is going to fetch her!

The very next person she meets is Hercules. He introduces himself as ‘Half-human, half-God and all hero’! Sounds promising! Perhaps he can help?

As Hercules is working through his Labours when they meet, Cleo appoints herself as his supportive ‘sidekick’! The two form an unlikely team – unified by a shared desire to get to Mount Olympus and reunite with their families.

Activity pack and songs the children can learn

Jump to It! and Cleo Copperpot's Adventures with Hercules are great catalysts for engaging children with stories that they can enjoy both before and after the show itself.
