Shock in New Drama!

Shock have again worked with long term collaborators Tall Stories on a new children's show called "Room on The Broom". This adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's classic picturebook tells the story of a hapless witch who when flying through the back of beyond, keeps losing things and has to fly to the ground to pick them up. Along the way, the witch and her trusty cat meet lots of characters who they agree to take with them. It isn't long before this leads to some serious overloading and an encounter with a hungry dragon! Shock wrote and produced the music for the show which is currently touring the UK and will run in the West End this Christmas.

We also recently provided sound design and technical services for a live tour of "Boogie Pete", a show developed by the BBC and seen by millions on the CBEEBIES channel.

Meanwhile, another classic children's show that we wrote the music for has finally reached the shores of Australia. "The Gruffalo" hit Sydney this week having been seen by hundreds and thousands of children around the world and is already selling out for much of it's scheduled tour around Australia and New Zealand.
