About Jellyfish Theatre
Jellyfish is a touring theatre company based in south London. We perform in theatres, arts centres, libraries, at festivals and anywhere else that will have us.
What we do
Jellyfish make heart-warming theatre for young audiences.
We adapt classic tales and also create original work for young audiences. We bring stories vividly to life in the theatre with songs and puppetry and a bit of help from the audience. We work in the UK and abroad. In the UK we make family theatre shows for children aged 4+ and storytellings for children aged 3+ Our international work is focused on learning English through theatre and is supported by materials that teachers can use to help their students understand the show.
