Programme Information

Music-loving dog and cat Stan and Mabel are back! And this time they’re joined by a whole carnival of animals as they escape from the School for Wild and Dangerous Animals in search of a safe place to call their home.

Join narrator Esther Sheridan and Ensemble 360 in this lively concert for families, featuring story and illustrations by Jason Chapman with original music by our Children’s Composer in Residence, Paul Rissmann.

There’ll be music, storytelling, colourful illustrations and plenty of opportunities for you to join in. Each child will also receive an activity pack full of fun activities to explore on the concert day and at home.

Perfect for ages 3 - 7. Get a taste of what expect in this short video from our schools concert last November. 

Stick around after the concert to meet author-illustrator Jason Chapman. Here's a clip of him demonstrating how to draw his characters Stan and Mabel.

In the afternoon, come and explore Fun Labs: Music & Stories with Music in the Round, which we’re co-presenting with Sheffield Theatres. Find full details at in January.
