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.

It's been another successful year for Animated Objects, with our events engaging over 40,000 people across the region in the last twelve months. With commissioned projects including 'Stories of Remembrance' to mark the centenary of Armistice Day; the growing popularity of lantern parades in Whitby and Scarborough; an extensive range of outreach sessions for young people through the Essential Life Skills programme and 'The Big Picture' for the Tour de Yorkshire it's been a very busy year!

That's in addition to our own performance work including touring productions, open air theatre in schools and 'The Judgement' featuring at the Coastival festival in February.
Our outreach work with schools and community groups is as busy as ever, with exciting new projects including; immersive projects exploring the impact we have on our oceans; Shakespearean productions; and animation inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

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.
