Tall Tails Theatre Company

With the need for theatre and live arts venues to remain closed for the festive period, many families across the country stood not to have their Christmas show or pantomime this year. Thankfully, Tall Tails Theatre Company’s new production 'What a Superhero Wants for Christmas' can be viewed online for FREE until 14 January.


What a Superhero Wants for Christmas

Schools and home education groups are invited to contact Abby on for a Vimeo link to broadcast. 

The film is also being screened online by The Octagon Theatre and The Cockpit available until Thursday 14th January 2021.

Tall Tails has incorporated a wide range of access provision into this pantomime in order to ensure the film can reach all families, includin: captioning, audio description and the use of sign by the characters, with disability-friendly, inclusive production, themes and language throughout.

"This wonderfully accessible and reassuring piece of children’s theatre is worth watching if your children are feeling lonely and isolated at the moment" Love London Love Culture



Conceived, devised and performed by Abby Forknall and Richard Young


Supported by Somerset Emergency Theatre's 'Connecting Communities'


Doorstep Superheroes

On the 29th of March, after consulting with Wassail and Shepton Mallet's PCSO Tall Tails Theatre Company embarked on a mission to spread some lockdown joy and merriment around the town.

"At first we were nervous, how would people react? Would we see anyone? Would the idea bring the joy we were hoping for?"

In short, the answer was yes! Car horn beeps, standing ovations, Emergency Services smiles, waves and a surprise birthday party involving wand making, party dances, games and ten cakes helped make Shepton the happiest place in Somerset!
