What is it?


Acting the Party is an audio production that lasts at least 1 and 1/2 hours.

A narrator tells a fantasy story in which the children become the characters, they give clear instructions to the children who will get up in ones or twos to act out their part. During the story they will all get up to play party games –

Tell me more…


Acting the Party is an audio guided role playing party, similar to a mystery party.  We realised however, that reading character parts didn’t always come easily to young children so instead we have designed and produced high quality audio party plays.

Our professional narrators read the stories, giving instructional prompts throughout. We cram in as much music

How to host


Once the party pack is delivered, open and read the simple instructions – some things are to do before the day, some on the day, very little for either. Print and/or prepare the game accessories. Send out the invitations and wrap a Pass the Parcel 9 times – children’s parties only. Play the audio, the

My child is slightly younger/older, does this matter?


When designing Acting the Party we anticipated that if a child is about to have their 7th birthday it would be most likely that children aged 6 may attend the party. This is perfectly ok, they will manage the games and riddles, however, any younger and they may possibly struggle without help.
Likewise at a 9

My daughter wants to invite a boy/s …. my son wants to invite a girl/s?


We would advise that the Spooky Spectacular Pirate Party is best played either as a mixed or boys only party unless all the girls coming to the party are happy playing boisterous roles.
Leela’s Adventure was written with girls in mind and is made up of mainly girl characters apart from the dog and a monkey

Does it have to be played at home?


From our own experience we realise that children’s parties can become very expensive so with this in mind we designed Acting the Party to be played at home. We also know, from a child’s point of view, they generally feel more comfortable in a home setting.

However, it is possible to play Acting the Party in

Why the different pricing for the same party?


Our prices start from as little as £2.50 a child.

The Standard pack is the best value. It contains everything you need for 8 children, including the audio.

The CD pack is the same as the Standard pack but comes in a gift tin so will make a special gift and is re-usable.

The usb has printer

What if I want a bigger children’s party?


We have intentionally restricted the numbers so that everyone gets a good chance to play, and for parents to handle an easier party. Should you wish to hold a larger party then the best way to do this is with multiple groups of the original number, each group plays alongside each other. For example, a

Why use Acting the Party and not just do a few birthday games myself?


Of course you may feel comfortable playing games or doing craft activities with children and confident giving children instructions.

Acting the Party is ideal however for busy parents, uncertain what to do between games,  with little time or money to organise a party.

Acting the Party has done all the work for you, there is nothing or very little for
