Storytelling. Writing. Performance by
Super Sparkle Tales is a small and friendly storytelling company offering magical and interactive storytelling and performances for children across the Midlands!
Set up and run by Monika Johnson, we have been running since 2013 and have taken many exciting adventures along the way...we've had porridge with dinosaurs, invented a rubbish robot, and sailed through a teeny weeny fairy door with our original, magical and fully interactive shows for children aged 3 plus.
Storytelling-We often tell at events, festivals, schools and parties, with a focus on storytelling for children and young people aged 3-18.
Workshops-We can offer interactive Drama workshops alongside storytelling sessions for schools and Monika is a trained Drama teacher and LAMDA speech and drama tutor.
Writing- Super Sparkle Tales creates new and orginal scripts and stories for children and young people to be used in theatres, schools, festivals and performance exams.
'Absolutely wonderful storytelling, magic and comedy. The children were hooked from the moment you made a rubber duck appear from thin air!'

Performances & Events for Children
Where do we perform?
All over! We have taken shows to festivals, tea shops, village halls and into the woods-we love new spaces that are accessible and local to the community.
What do we do?
We LOVE telling stories and bringing them to life through performance. Each show is written and created by Monika and our lovely team to bring magic, story and characters to life and create an interactive adventure children will love to join!
We also run freelance storytelling sessions and Drama workshops for nurseries, schools and events.
Who are We?
After setting up children's event and party company Super Sparkle Parties in 2013, Monika and the team started putting on half term storytelling events for children across Nottingham-this soon led to storytelling at festivals, schools and family events right across the Midlands.
We are proud that our shows have always received 5 star feedback from our little (and grown up) audiences alike!
Storytelling. Theatre. Schools. Workshops
We are available to attend events, festivals, parties or schools to tell stories and run themed Drama workshops.
We have a list of recent storytelling sessions on offer but can also adapt and develop new material and workshops to suit a particular theme or performance!
We have over 14 years experience of teaching Drama and Monika is a trained teacher and LAMDA Speech and Drama tutor.
Writing: Scripts and Stories
Super Sparkle Tales has a focus on writing scripts and stories for children and young people. Plays to be performed at theatres, events, schools, and for performance exams.
Stories to be read or told. Many of our short stories have follow up Drama activities and workshops to go with them; useful for teachers, pre schools and one off rehearsals.
Performance and Events
We have put on shows and performed at events, festivals and theatre venues across the Midlands. Previous storytelling performances, aimed at children, have been: 'Cinderella and the super slipper!', 'Who robbed Rudolph?' and 'Goldilocks and the three dinosaurs'. Each show has been written by Monika and performed to a family audience.
