Mummy, There's a New Girl

Updated: Feb 20, 2023

Inspired by the incredible children's book by Danielle Webb, ‘Mummy, There's a New Girl’, we present a 20-minute performance that promotes friendship and inclusion.


The story follows a student learning about difference with their Mummy and how they can be a good friend to a new girl who joins their school...


We are so pleased to have been able to offer a total of FIVE performances at the Market Weighton Wicstun Centre. Each followed by a 30-minute workshop which used playful drama based activities to explore the themes of: uniqueness and friendship.


At the end of every session we invited a representative from the charity Little People UK to read the original book and allowed audiences to ask questions in a safe space.
