About Us

We formed Hobgoblin Theatre Company out of a desire to do something worthwhile with our training and experience while still enjoying the excitement of live performance.

 Each of us had professional training as well as experience working in Theatre in Education before we formed Hobgoblin and, added to the things we have learnt over the past 12 years, we believe that we can meet any challenge that we are presented with.

 We write all of our own material from scratch to ensure that it meets our high standards. We also make all of our costumes, props and sets and we take great pleasure in performing our shows and running our drama workshops in schools and elsewhere.

 There really is no more honest audience than an audience of children and we take great pride in the fact that the response we get from them is so positive.

 With more new shows and workshop ideas on the cards we're looking forward to the next 12 years and beyond...!

Hobgoblins Play in a Day Allows children to learn about a period of time in a fun and creative way. 

Led by one of our actor facilitators, the day kicks off with games and drama activities based on the historical period you have chosen. There are plenty of fun facts and stories included, adding to the children’s knowledge on the topic.

We include sound effects, music and simple pieces of costume and props. The experience is for a max of one class, or 30 children.
