Space Jump Literacy Musical      

What is going on with Claire and why is she acting so spaced out? Everything she has been saying and doing today just doesn’t add up. To make matters worse there are times when Oliver feels like everything that is going on has happened before.  How can it be that two friends that have known each other for so long suddenly feel like they’re worlds apart? 

Join Claire and Oliver (and two crazy scientists!) as they fly from book to book on their adventure of galactic proportions!

Our brand new literacy musical shows how interacting with books and our imagination can can expand our horizons and explores how looking for things we have in common with others can create all kinds of opportunities.

Popular books

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:

  • The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers
  • The Green Ship by Quentin Blake
  • The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
  • Belonging by Jeannie Baker*

Activity pack and songs the children can learn

Space Jump is a great catalyst for engaging children with stories that they can enjoy both before and after the show itself. The children will love the show on its own, but our free activity pack and sing-a-long versions of the songs help make it easy to incorporate the stories into your lessons as well.

The shows have consistently been of a very high standard and we have never been disappointed!

The actors were experienced and had planned for pitfalls and had good strategies to manage behaviour but welcomed participation. For many of our children this will have been the first time they have experienced ‘musical theatre’ style singing up close...they were captivated! I will definitely re-book this company

* Belonging also has a U.S. version titled Home. The two books are the same except for the covers and titles.
