Do Good in Brentwood campaigner Villene Hyam wants to tell the borough this month about the amazing work of the Really Big Pants Theatre Company.
How's your summer going so far?
We've been enjoying some museums, visiting some RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) gardens and staying local where we can.
We took part in the Get Into Arts! Festival at Brentwood Theatre to see the Really Big Pants Theatre Company, who we'd previously watched at Chicken & Frog's Children's Literary Festival.
They're now a permanent fixture at the cultural events we have here in Brentwood and we were all really excited to see what they had in store for us this time.
The Really Big Pants Theatre Company are Joe Bromley and Willow Nash - two really amazing ladies with the kindest of hearts, and a bucket load of talent.
Their play this time was called Wonky and, without giving too much away, the message was typical Really Big Pants Theatre Company.
Be kind, be thoughtful, be nutritious. And be confident - whether you're a boy, girl (or vegetable), anything is possible!
My two thoroughly enjoyed it and even managed to join in with some rapping!
It was right up our street, and Joe and Willow are passionate about kindness too, looking after each other and our planet.
I know from personal experience, it's hard to get those messages across in a fun way, but these two have totally mastered it.
So, not only was it a really entertaining and fun show, filled with a whole host of accents, songs, dances, costumes and props; there are multiple characters to learn from and a very important topical message there too.
There's a rumour they will be back for the Children's Literary Festival in February, courtesy of the wonderful Chicken & Frog Bookshop again - we hope so.
In the meantime, all their shows are all designed for Key Stages 1 & 2 and they primarily play at schools, so the boys are going to be asking their teachers if Joe and Willow can visit them after September! n
