Interactive Family Theatre
IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME
You’ve fallen through a time portal and find yourself in 1971 at Quest Camp, deep in the heart of the Freaky Forest - the UK’s most cursed forest. Luckily, Camp Captain Jenny has a magic whistle which stops the curse and keeps everyone at camp safe; but - oh no! The whistle is missing! Can you survive the Freaky Forest and find Captain Jenny’s whistle before nightfall?
Aimed at ages 6+, Select A Quest is brimming with silliness, heart and humour. With 27 scenes and multiple paths to choose from, once you start it will be hard to leave!

"Select a Quest is a clever interpretation of theatre and surprisingly addictive"
Jess loves to play silly characters and dress up in costumes with funny walks and different accents, but more than that, she loves to have a laugh!
Anna is an actor, writer and musician. Her favourite lockdown activity has been writing and recording Spanish pop songs for her 5 year old nephew.
Harry is a Cumbrian theatre maker, cabaret and drag artist based in Bristol. He runs regular drag night, The Shade Pullers & Lash Stackers Social Club, and co-directs theatre company, Bad Vs Evil.
Caroline has always loved doing silly voices, pulling faces, and pretending to be someone she is not. She feels very lucky that she gets to be creative every day for her job.
Simon is Britain's number one hand model. All this clapping and washing has really been a challenge, so he thought he'd try acting instead. He takes himself very seriously indeed.
Alison has been an actress and professional face puller for 20 years! (She is soooo old) She lives in Gert Lush, Bristol and enjoys chatting to her pet tropical fish!
Tim is an actor whose only audience for the last 8 weeks has been his 3 year old son. Tim has been perfecting his Italian and his cooking during lockdown - he makes delicious spaghetti and meatballs.
Robin Hemmings is an actor. He plays the guitar and likes to perform funny plays and stories. His favourite colour is yellow because it’s like the sun and makes him happy.
Roxy has been mucking about and not stopped being silly since she was born and finally ended up getting paid for it. Trained at The Brit School and GSA. She has also worked for Pins & Needles before in Mr Poppers Penguins.
