Theatre in Education tour

The Theatre in Education Tour offers our Year 10 girls the opportunity to create a piece of theatre for primary school children aimed mostly at Years 5 and 6. The work is usually based upon a style of a specific writer and is 20 to 25 minutes in length and uses Physical Theatre as a style of performance. The girls perform the plays and then undertake workshops to teach specific performance skills. 


An opportunity for the girls to:  a) Create drama for a specific audience b) to use new techniques and styles of performance c) to think on their feet.

Time: the girls must ensure that the project is ready for its audience on a specific date

Both our girls and the pupils in local schools.
