Animated Objects Theatre Company

Animated Objects Theatre Company based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire specialise in large scale events, outdoor theatre, giant artworks and performances involving professional artists, schools and the wider community. Here you'll find details of our current work and productions, and how to get involved.

If you are a school, local authority or community organisation and are interested in working with us on future projects, please visit our workshops and events pages to see what we do and contact us to discuss your ideas in more detail. Every project is bespoke, and we can bring artistic excellence and professional event planning expertise to deliver exceptional experiences for both participants and audiences alike. If you don't see something you need, drop us a line - if we can't do it, we probably know somebody who can!

Throughout the past year, Animated Objects have been working to deliver videos and projects online via our social media channels. To have a look through any of the tutorials and ideas, please visit our Facebook or Instagram pages or visit our YouTube channel to look through over 100 activities using only pen, pencils, paper and cardboard - no glue - no expensive materials, just plenty of creativity for you to try at home.

We've also been busy working on our latest large scale project- 'The Odyssey', working with the Yorkshire Coast BID to deliver participatory arts along 100 miles of coastline, reinventing an epic tale with the local communities at its heart. Over the past few months we've been engaging artists, musicians, storytellers and local volunteers to help us tell this incredible story.

Look out for updates on our social media channels in the coming months, as we've got lots of exciting plans for the year ahead!

We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to support 'Lighting up the Coast' in April and 'A Thousand Ships' in the summer, along with all of you who have sent us lovely comments about the sand art we've been creating for the project.

Watch out for our new geolocation version of the tale, where you can listen to the story of how the Trojan Wars began told by a host of storytellers and performers from the coast, and featuring the work of musicians from this region.

It’s going to be epic.

And you can be part of it.

Follow us to stay up to date with how to get involved in the coming months.

And we look forward to welcoming you on our adventures once again.
