LYNGO THEATRE

LYNGO is a UK based children’s theatre company with strong Italian connections. Our shows have delighted children and adults for over 10 years with their unique mix of fun and beautiful imagery, working magically together to reveal the vivid poetic realm that is at the heart of our work.

Our trademark features are a singular visual flair, an inventive use of props -beautifully designed and hand-made ‘theatre toys’- and an interactive and genuine approach to play, no matter the age of our audience. 

Lyngo has currently on offer a repertoire of end-on shows for older children (3-10 years) and in-the-round interactive shows for a very young audience (1-5 years)

 “Lyngo knows the score when it comes to producing theatre for the very young. “ The Stage

COMMENTS

‘Loved the use of simple devices to stir the imagination. Patrick Lynch drew you into his world.’

‘Great actor, wonderful storytelling, ingenious props.’

‘I thought the birds were brilliant.’

‘ “exelunt show”, from Abigail, age 7, front row with hie hill shoes...who touched the cows head.’ 

‘Oscar loved the things you have made, Georgia loved the way it was life-like and mysterious, Pete loved the snow-tree, I loved the music and the beautifully put together whole.’

‘What I liked was the way you adapted parts of the story to fit the props (not the other way round). The gadgets were captivating for the children, and the way the sticks for example represented the big forest. It was stimulating for my little sisters because they had to think about it.’
