We are Paperfinch, a Sheffield-based theatre company. We make old stories in new ways.
We make interactive, immersive shows that are fun for all ages. We like to build strange and familiar worlds that are multi-layered and endlessly creative. We make work of all sizes. Our smallest shows take place in one room, and our largest shows can take over a whole building (22 rooms at the last count).
Previous productions include:
Hansel and Gretel | The Steadfast Tin Soldier | Beauty and the Beast | Curiouser and Curiouser | Beatrix Potter’s Garden | The Unbirthday Party + Wonderland Cafe | The Nutcracker
Our next show is: The Snow Queen at Theatr Clwyd in Mold, North Wales
