About Us

Firehorse Productions produces educational drama for children. The company has gained an exemplary reputation, the quality of its work being its trademark.

Drama is a powerful and flexible tool that we use to develop and enhance children’s understanding of social and curriculum-based issues.


We combine education with entertainment, our strength being balancing humour with serious messages.

Children deserve the best theatre experience and this is what we provide.

Our founder member and artistic director, Denise Francis, has over 20 years’ experience of writing and producing relevant, witty informative educational drama for children. Our directors Owen Hopkins and Gavin Richards are highly skilled and passionate about educating through entertainment.

It is a privileged position to perform to children and we take that responsibility seriously. All company members hold DBS enhanced certificates and are talented and enthusiastic performers who can relate well to audiences.
