My name is Tony and I have the most extraordinary friend…Pablo Picasso! Come and play down on the farm with Tony and Picasso. We’ll have loads of fun, make crazy pictures and we’ll tell the true story of how a young boy became friends with one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

This is a 'messy' theatre show with lots of interactive fun to engage young children.

The show is based on a Thames Hudson publication of the same name, and is touring around the country - see the growing gallery of 'Picasso' pictures from Untied Artists.

The production will be shown at a local school on Friday 4 November - if you would like to have this or any of the shows at your school please do contact us.

With storytelling, music and lots of chances to make your own art The Boy Who Bit Picasso is an interactive theatre show for everyone aged four to eight and their families, this hands-on family show introduces one of the 20th century’s most influential artists through the eyes of a young boy.

Be sure to wear some play-clothes because it’s going to get messy!

Programmed in collaboration with Pound Arts.

"sweet little tale about a sulky schoolboy who bonds with a Clouseau-ish, beret-wearing, bull-obsessed painter. . . What makes the show are the regular pauses in which to let the kids get on with mask-making, collages, and drawing"
