A digital and physical circus-theatre experience for 2-7 year olds and their families.

Some might be Plink and others are Boo
Why does it matter, what’s the to-do?
Jumbled up people and boxes too small;
Let’s make a den and discover it all…

Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Play-Along Plink and Boo, a unique, interactive circus theatre performance made for camera. Join us from the comfort of your own home as we explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).

"an imaginative, stereotype-busting home theatre experience" The Guardian

 

 

This show combines watching a filmed performance with playing along with real objects in your own homes. The objects are the same as the ones you’ll see in the show. You can download an activity pack or watch this instruction video that shows you how to make these objects, using things you can find round the house.
 
Before you watch Play-Along Plink and Boo, we recommend getting ready by building a theatre den in your front room! In this video, Thea, the youngest member of Can't Sit Still, shows you how to do just that.
 
As parents ourselves, we appreciate that anyone looking after children is likely to be busy! If you don’t have time to do all this before the show, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the experience without the props or den.

Play-Along Plink and Boo uses minimal text. The performers use Sign Supported English (SSE) to accompany the few words that are used. The animation in the film helps to illustrate the sounds and music used, as well as creatively captioning the text.

"an imaginative, stereotype-busting home theatre experience that can’t be confined [it’s] threatening to burst out of the screen equal parts theatre, comic book and circus – a hybrid unlike any children’s show we’ve seen"

The Guardian

"a highly sensory show, which has been beautifully filmed and makes fantastic use of animations to enhance the visual and auditory experience. We cannot recommend Play-Along Plink and Boo strongly enough to anyone who is looking for an engaging, thought-provoking piece of family theatre to watch from the comfort of their own home so brilliantly adapted for digital delivery that it works perfectly on screen"

The Family Stage

"Play-Along Plink and Boo is the whole package; it’s accessible, it’s joyous and it’s clearly been created with children at its heart. Can’t Sit Still have created a delightful performance where we can explore the magic within our own uniqueness, without being confined to a box."
