What happens when you bring six seasoned Saltmine actors to a show they have performed many times before? Their ideas become bigger and more bonkers, of course. With funding from the Home Office, after having had to delay touring twice, we were able to film In Their Shoes for the first time. More characters, more costume changes, a reinvented set and brand new music injected the show with plenty of life.

Our rehearsals were full of laughter, silliness, and inventiveness. But In Their Shoes has always featured an irreplaceable main character – the audience.

In the accompanying workshop we really wanted to recreate a sense of interaction, including as many games and character cameos as we could in order to engage the children in their classrooms or at home. Many schools across Sandwell and Dudley have already received the show, and we’re currently exploring how much further it can be distributed.

“A great experience and as good as having you live in the school!”
