The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield Theatres has teamed up with the Sheffield Children's University to bring theatre into your home.

Writer Chris Bush has written a story, but she’s having trouble finishing it, she needs your help! Not only do you have to finish the script, but you need to become the director, designer and the star of the show as you create your own Shadowbox Puppet Theatre.

Follow the six activities, filled with video workshops and guidance on storytelling techniques to bring your story to life.

What to do:

1. Work through each activity in order. You may need some craft materials.

2. There’s numerous resources to help you create your production, including videos and music to accompany the show.

3. Remember to write your own ending to the script, be creative and put on a fantastic show!
