Children’s Parties

Birthday parties

If you’re looking for something a little different for your child’s birthday party, look no further! Standing In The Wings can provide party entertainment with a drama focus.

Starting with interactive drama games, our party leader will help the children create an adventure story based on the birthday child for a memorable party!

Different themes are available including: legends & myths, fairytales, animals and pirates. We can also discuss bespoke options, just get in contact with us with your ideas!
