What Do We Do?

Momo theatreMomo theatreWe are a friendly, flexible organisation producing presentations, workshops and shows.

Over the last ten years, MOMO Theatre has gained an impressive reputation for providing effective, educational and entertaining productions all over the UK.

We have performed in schools, workplaces and at outdoor events. Much of our experience has been in the area of sustainability and the environment, but we can create a show to be performed anywhere, to make anyone enthusiastic about any topic.

 

 

MOMO Theatre is dedicated to practicing what we preach.
There’s more details about our green credentials here.

But whatever your message and whoever you want to hear it, we can create shows that are highly effective in informing, educating and encouraging behavioural change.

We have performed theatre in schools to get children enthusiastic about difficult subjects such as healthy eating. We have provided shows in workplaces to get staff motivated to change their behaviour in areas such as energy efficiency. We have entertained the general public stimulating them to thinking about important issues such as climate change.

We have a large list of comments and testimonials from those who have used us over the years. In short, we provide shows to be performed anywhere, to make anyone enthusiastic about any topic!

We are also doing everything we can to be environmentally friendly – like using electricity from renewable energy and using waste chip oil to fuel our vehicle. For full details have a look here.

Company Policy on Using Theatre as Education

The company believes that to really engage people with any issue, you must first make friends, and then make the message personal to their situation.

For an individual to begin learning or changing their behaviour, they must be willing to learn or change – and there is no better way to make someone open to your message than by making them laugh.

Once they are on your side, and can see your message is relevant to them, both children and adults have a great appetite for information.
