Groove Into the Woods

by Groove Baby


Venture into the deep dark woods on a jazz- and funk-fuelled family adventure for ages 3 – 7. Who will we find? Will they be bad or good?

about the production

Groove Into the Woods is a funny and exciting tale about Holly, Ash and Rowan who are transported into a magical forest. On a mission to rescue their parents from naughty trolls they encounter a confused witch, a rebellious princess and a bunch of other kooky fairytale characters. The show weaves original jazz / funk / pop tunes together with animated storytelling (projected) and fun audience interaction. The show is performed by top quality jazz musicians who have years of family-show experience.

This show is a great alternative to 'children's shows' - the music is top quality jazz and contemporary music that you might hear in a club in the evening. Dads particularly love it.

We loved the story, the animation, the music of course, the fact that was interactive (although I was the one following the movement, not my 7 years old son). I have a newborn now and I can't wait to come to one of your concerts again!

Hi! I watched this with my 5 year old son and we both loved it - really brilliant and would definitely like to see more like that please! The narration was amazing!!

Katharine (audience member)

I popped into one of the shows on Sunday and it was great to feel the joy in the room! Rosie and I had positive feedback from parents/grandparents who all enjoyed it and felt it had been done safely and well. So thank you and your team so much.
