Blue Elephant Turns 21!

From June 1st, we are celebrating Blue Elephant's 21st anniversary and all the people who have made it possible.

We have two very special films to share today.

The first - to mark the start of Volunteers Week 2020 - is an interview with our two longest-standing volunteers, Chris Lawrence and Leo Scalione.

And a longer but engrossing watch is this documentary made by founder Antonio Ribeiro from never-before-seen footage of the early days of the Blue Elephant. You can watch it here

Moon on a Stick has created Little Star@Home, a digital adaptation of their show for ages 0 -2!

Join Little Star as she swings from shooting stars, slides down crescent moons and bounces on fluffy clouds. Using puppetry, music and captivating visuals to delight our young audience, Moon on a Stick lead you through the show so you can join in with all the interaction at home.

Little Star features the popular song ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, taking us on a journey with the star herself. Little Star wants to explore space. Not content with the same spot in the sky, she wants to see, hear and touch everything!

Praise for Little Star:
“The music and sensory experience was mesmerising for the babies” Audience member

"My 7 month old little girl loved this production. She was captivated by all the lights and sounds. A great first show for babies and a relaxing time for parents too."Audience member

Little Star@Home is available every Monday for 7 days or for 3 weeks if you purchase the at home props set. Click Click here for more information.

So It Goes

So It Goes comes to your living room.

So It Goes was On the Run's first play, inspired Artistic Director Hannah Moss wanting to make a show about her dad. It became a show about how we respond to grief and how hard it is to talk about death.

It is one of the most successful shows we have supported in its early stages, having both scratch and work in progress performances at Blue Elephant.

When it opened at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, The Independent called it “one of this year’s breakthrough shows”. It played to sell out audiences, receiving a five star review in The Times and four star reviews in The Telegraph, Scotsman, Evening Standard and Independent.

On the Run is now sharing So It Goes online until May 29th and it can seen here

You can access the link FOR FREE but they are asking for a suggested a donation of £3. Of the money raised 50% will go to the Marie Curie Hospice Hampstead. This money will support Marie Curie and the hospice during the COVID19 pandemic.
