Once Upon a Time...


Sorcha Shanahan and Gemma Walker-Farren are the ‘MakeyUppers’, an original comedy storytelling act. They use their skills as performers, facilitators and theatre makers to create dynamic and involving storytelling. They aim to engage their audiences in experiences that are multi-layered, highly enjoyable and beautifully simple.

The ‘MakeyUppers’ perform multi-disciplinary, high-energy, comedy shows as well as interactive, intergenerational workshops. Their work is hugely diverse and ever changing but always rooted in a mutual desire to create meaningful work through play.
