We bring history to life as we explore the effects of

rationing, evacuation and The Blitz accompanied by

sights and sounds of the period.

We transform your school hall with our full theatrical

set and performance through audience participation presenting the major events of the war including the German Invasion of Europe and The Battle of Britain.

History is brought to life with Tickled Pink's own unique

style of Theatre-in-Education with a pre-show workshop

for up to 30 children where they are rehearsed in to the

show itself, with their own costumes, allowing them to work alongside our professional performers and perform in front of their friends and class mates.

By Tickled Pink Productions


In 1939 when Nevil Chamberlain

the Prime Minister announced that Britain was now at war with

Germany, it wasn't just people in the army and navy who were

affected - it was everyone! 

The second World War became known as The People's War and

7 year old Caroline's life was turned upside down! First she was

EVACUATED to Wales where everyone at her new school thought she spoke with a funny accent but she soon made new friends, this didn't stop her feeling terribly homesick though. After just a few months of being in the country and with no bombs falling on London,

Caroline (and half of the other 100,000 evacuees) returned home to

London... just in time for THE BLITZ! 


For 57 nights bombs fell on London but Caroline dared not be scared as even children had to help keep morale high plus best friend Johnny always knew how to keep spirits up.

After several uncomfortable nights down the air raid shelter, the local shop keeper let Caroline use her MORRISON SHELTER in their front room - which although was rather cramped, was much nicer than going down the AIR RAID SHELTER. 

Life became very different for Caroline - her Dad was CALLED UP and her mum got a job working in the PARACHUTE FACTORY. Caroline suddenly had a lot more RESPONSIBILITIES - including buying the weekly shopping which wasn't easy with RATIONING but like everyone else, Caroline quickly learnt to MAKE DO & MEND.

Tickled Pink Productions' PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES is a child's

journey of WORLD WAR II, closely focusing on The National

Curriculum's Guide Lines for EVACUATION, THE BLITZ and

The show lasts for an hour and is suitable for reception to year 6. Prior to the show Tickled Pink Productions hold a 45 minute workshop for 30 children who are given their own role to play and a special costume. 

Tickled Pink Productions' performers are highly skilled trained actors who will get the best out of your children in a very short time - schools are amazed at how well their children do in the workshop and show.


This is a great introduction to

drama as well as making the whole play more interesting for the rest of the school as they can enjoy watching their classmates perform along side the professional performers. There is full audience participation throughout the show which really brings HISTORY TO LIFE. 

PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES is a great first lesson of World War II

and an even better follow-up lesson for children studying the subject. 

 Tickled Pink Productions' unique and original show brings history alive.
