Ranger Rita's Animal Adventure

"Ranger Rita's Animal Adventure", commissioned by the Wildlife Trust, is a 30-minute, fun, fact-filled, interactive family show, performed at schools, parks and wildlife centres around the East Midlands.

 

We'll have you jumping up and down like a frog, standing on one leg like a heron and practising echolocation like a bat! Will you help Ranger Rita protect and preserve our nature reserves?

We also offer a follow-on drama workshop which looks at the movement and sounds of the animals in the show.

Ranger Rita's Animal Amble

Ranger Rita's Animal Amble", commissioned by the Wildlife Trust, is a 45-minute, theatrical, adventure trail for all the family about looking after our environment.

Follow Ranger Rita as she leads you on a nature walk and see what animals you can spot along the way. Find out fascinating facts about bats, herons, otters and spiders, as well as many other species of animal, all native to the UK. How big is a heron's wingspan? What happens if otter's play with plastic?  How does a bat kept warm? Can you spin a spider's web? Join us to find out!

"Laugh Out Loud Theatre were a pleasure to work with, they quickly understood our aims and objectives and created a flexible, engaging script that could be adapted to a variety of scenarios. There performances were great fun and were enjoyed by adults and children alike. We look forward to working with them again in the near future."

(Katie King, Communities and Wildlife Officer, The Wildlife Trust BCN)

"My young daughter Evie, aged 3, was fascinated by all the characters. She particularly thought the otter was very funny, pretending to eat plastic bottles, etc, in his speech about recycling." (Audience member)

"My children are huge fans of wildlife and were enchanted by Ranger Rita introducing us to all the animals. There was comedy, adventure and a whole lot of education for the whole family. Really hope we get the chance to see them again."
