We are delighted to announce that we are working in collaboration with ArtsHouse Caterham as the theatre company in residence at Caterham School. The school has recently opened a new, state of the arts venue within the school campus, which will bring fresh, exciting, professional work to the borough, totally open to the public.
Zoo Animals Roz and Florence have taken on the core programming commitment at the space, bringing in work which they feel reflects the very best touring productions, bringing diversity, creativity and wonder to Caterham residents. They’ve also managed to shoehorn in two Zoo Co productions to the venue’s first season, giving our most local audiences the opportunity to see their two current touring productions! Caterham School have supported Zoo Co with rehearsal space, storage space and technical assistance for the creation of GIANT, and we hope to continue to enjoy a continued collaborative effort to bring professional work to the local area in this beautiful new venue.
This space is very much open to all, and we do hope that you will find yourself sitting in the audience for one of the many exciting events we have programmed between March and July.

Love and Rabbits
The Underground Clown Club
FRIDAY 9TH JUNE @ 7.30PM
Two fools take to the stage to lead you on a poetic journey through the most surreal, silly and forgotten parts of your imagination.
Love & Rabbits is children’s poetry for adults. Taking inspiration from Spike Milligan and Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Dr Seuss, two performers create scenes, stories and sketches out of a handful of props and some silly poems, to enthrall and entertain you.
This performance is suitable for all ages.
“Performed with such energy, devotion, innocence and heart, that before you know it, you are hooked, you are laughing, and most of all, you feel for the characters.” – A Younger Theatre
★★★★ “Like the love child of Dr Seuss and Edgar Allen Poe spliced with a touch of Lewis Carroll absurdity.” – Sabotage Reviews
The Girl Who Fell in Love With The Moon
The Zoo Co Theatre Company
WEDNESDAY 5TH JULY @ 7PM
Tommy, 22, lives with three generations of his family. They’ve learnt to ignore the strange things his nan says over dinner, and the bizarre rumblings coming from the attic.
Horribly honest clowns and questionable cabaret acts ignite the stage with Zoo Co’s trademark live music, puppetry, poetry & movement.
GIANT is an explosive, absurd and visceral adventure into ‘Adulting’… Could Tommy’s nan know more than meets the eye?
This performance is suitable for audiences aged 12+ and has tongue-in-cheek, silly cabaret and one use of strong language.
GIANT will be performed in a Relaxed Performance setting, open to all audiences, regardless of access requirements.
The show itself stays exactly the same, but the usual rules of being in an audience are relaxed, meaning that if somebody needs to shuffle around a bit, make some noise or come and go, that is absolutely fine.
This is part of Zoo Co’s aim to make as many of their performances as possible accessible to everybody. For any further information, or to discuss further access requirements, please contact Florence on firstname.lastname@example.org.
