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!

Please note that we will be structuring sessions to fit the current guidelines on social distancing, and will discuss this with you in advance of any session delivery until restrictions are lifted. (See updates below)

Throughout lockdown, 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're also excited to announce that we are about to embark on a new project on an epic scale - '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 it's heart. We're aiming to tour our first stage of this project - 'Lighting up the Coast' to towns in November. Watch this space for details.

We've also had some incredible feedback following the Scarborough Armed Forces Day Virtual Event, and are looking forward to the National Event in 2021.

Finally, why not take a look at our South Cliff Garden page for ideas inspired by this wonderful location for those wanting to encounter nature in Scarborough. There's lots of activities for children and adults alike, and a brand new audio story recorded specially for the summer holidays.

Stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you to our activities in person again when the time is right.
