The songs of the sea and forest have gone missing! For Jess and George, two strangers from neighbouring villages, this changes everything. Jess has spent her whole life in the village of Seaview while George has grown up in Treeland, in the forest. They’ve never met, but as they each follow a mysterious map their paths are about to cross in more ways than one. 

Follow Jess and George on a hilarious adventure as they search for the lost songs of their peoples. With the help of some books and some colourful yet familiar characters, they learn about the importance of reading, looking after the environment and each other, and the power of friendship to bring us together. 

Popular books

Inspiring children to read is key to Jess and George’s adventure. During the show they learn from and interact with characters from three popular books which you can explore and read with the children:

  • Under the Same Sky by Britta Teckentrup

  • Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers

  • This Morning I Met a Whale by Michael Morpurgo

Activity pack and songs the children can learn

Treasure Hunt is a chance for children to engage with stories and themes that they can enjoy both before and after the show itself. The children will love the show on its own, but our free activity pack and sing-a-long versions of the songs allow you to incorporate the books and stories into your lessons as well.

The children were so engaged throughout the performance and came away talking about the books mentioned in the play as well as singing the songs down the corridors! Great show with a lovely educational slant.

The performance enthused and engaged the children especially those children who do not see live theatre.
