Olive Tree Theatre

Our hour-long shows are created especially for care homes and include approximately 20 well-loved songs, tied together by a story that we write ourselves with the aim of bringing laughter and positive reminiscence. Residents are encouraged to join in with us every step of the way through singing the familiar songs, playing along (with the light percussion instruments that we provide) as well as gentle movement and dancing. This approach allows us to tailor our shows for audiences of all abilities, making us highly recommended by nursing homes and day centres alike. We have 6 wonderful shows to choose from for 2013, from songs from musicals, Country and Western music, Rock and Roll and songs from wartime- there's something for everyone!
