Once Upon a Dream

A day which hits literacy targets while seeking to raise children’s aspirations and to encourage them to go for their dreams.

We had a dream of a theatre company who would tell stories to audiences of all ages that has carried us through 40 years. As Footprints Theatre prepares to bow out, we want to take this chance to share with you some of our favourite story performances – as well as sharing with your children the idea that with hard work and determination they could achieve their own dreams for their lives in the future...
