Play-Along Plink and Boo27th February
Play along online in a special physical circus-theatre experience for 2 – 6 year olds and their families.
Some might be Plink and others are Boo
Why does it matter, what’s the to-do?
Jumbled up people and boxes too small;
Let’s make a den and discover it all…
Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Play-Along Plink and Boo, a unique circus theatre performance made for camera. Join us from the comfort of your own home as we explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).
This show combines watching a filmed performance with playing along with real objects in your own homes. The objects are the same as the ones you’ll see in the show. You can download an activity pack or watch the instruction videos below that shows you how to make these objects, using things you can find round the house. As parents ourselves, we appreciate that anyone looking after children is likely to be busy. If you don’t have time to do all this before the show, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the experience without them!

- Build your own theatre den
Why not make the occasion special by building your very own theatre den to watch the show from?
In this video, Thea, the youngest member of the Can't Sit Still team, shows you how to do just that, using everyday items you can find around the home.

We want our shows to be accessible to as many people as possible. If you are unsure about what to expect from this experience, we made some videos to introduce you to our three performers.

Play-Along Plink and Boo uses minimal text. The performers use Sign Supported English (SSE) to accompany the few words that are used. The animation in the film helps to illustrate the sounds and music used, as well as creatively captioning the text.
