Tall Stories – exciting imaginations
We create and share stories that broaden horizons and inspire generations.
Tall Stories is a registered charity which tours the UK and the world with its exciting blend of storytelling theatre, catchy music and lots of laughs.
Founded in 1997 by Olivia Jacobs and Toby Mitchell, Tall Stories shows have played in the West End, on Broadway and at the Sydney Opera House, as well as all sorts of venues and countries in between.
Tall Stories creates opportunities for everyone to get involved with theatre. The company offers accessible relaxed performances (often with integrated BSL) and provides free shows and experiences, helping to remove barriers that might otherwise prevent families from getting involved. From its studio base in Islington, London, Tall Stories nurtures new creatives and performers, whilst also delivering community events and projects.
