At TDLP we work closely with commissioners to create enjoyable and lasting experiences for families with young children, wherever they find us. We do this in a variety of ways, from shows to workshops to interactive installations and more. We work with a wide range of venues and partners and are always excited to hear from new commissioners.

Theatres & unusual spaces

We work with theatres to engage families with young children in new ways. Our fully interactive shows are custom-written for your venue to ensure that every TDLP experience engages our audience both emotionally and physically. We’ll create a new concept just for you or adapt one of our established shows to suit your requirements.
