Slot Machine Theatre ran workshops in three Maidenhead schools to find inspiration for their Christmas show at Norden Farm.
Actors Fiona Creese, Nick Tigg and Nicola Blackwell held sessions at Lowbrook Academy, Burchetts Green Infant School and St Edmund Campion throughout last week.
The company looked to draw on the imaginations of the youngsters and gain inspiration for 'Kipper's Snowy Day', which will be at Norden Farm in Altwood Road at Christmas.
Fiona Creese said: "It was very helpful, we've got sheets and sheets of things the kids want to see, so that will be a challenge for us.
"It was the age group of our audience, which is three and upwards.
“We got them to play and help us write songs and jump around.
"They seemed to love it and they got really into it."
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
