Can't Sit Still

Play-Along Plink & Boo

Part of Dancin' Oxford's Digital Playground

Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Play-Along Plink and Boo, a unique circus theatre performance made for camera. Join us from the comfort of your own home as we explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).

This show combines watching a filmed performance with playing along with real objects in your own homes. The objects are the same as the ones you’ll see in the show. You can download this activity pack or watch this instruction video that shows you how to make these objects, using things you can find round the house:

Before you watch Play-Along Plink and Boo, we recommend getting ready by building a theatre den in your front room! In this video, Thea, the youngest member of Can’t Sit Still, shows you how to do just that:

As parents ourselves, we appreciate that anyone looking after children is likely to be busy! If you don’t have time to do all this before the show, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the experience without the props or den.

Recommended for ages 2-6

Access Information

Play-Along Plink and Boo uses minimal text. The performers use Sign Supported English (SSE) to accompany the few words that are used. The animation in the film helps to illustrate the sounds and music used, as well as creatively captioning the text.

Can’t Sit Still want their shows to be accessible to as many people as possible. If you are unsure about what to expect from this experience, you can watch these videos to introduce you to our three performers.
