Theatre for Children
Our brand new Theatre for Children department, produces educational plays such as Oceania, where you can learn all about the effects pollution has on the sea, and how it affects us all. We have some exciting workshops coming in 2021, where you can join in with the actors and explore topics such as History, Maths, Music and English. But for now, why not have some fun with our very own Dromeo & Tilly in their brand new Online TV Series. There are 2 episodes coming out each week on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout January. Each episode will be available from 10am on the scheduled date.

Danni loves to go fishing on the beach and she spends all day there with her picnic. But when she’s finished eating she throws her rubbish into the sea. Suddenly out of the depths emerges a grumpy turtle covered in rubbish! He is not too pleased! He tells Danni she needs to learn a lesson. Danni is then taken aback by a talking dolphin who pops out of the waves. The dolphin takes her on a very strange adventure beneath the waves where he discovers the horrible “Pollution” monster as he terrifies all the creatures in the world of the sea. Through this strange adventure Danni finds out just exactly what harm is caused by simply leaving your rubbish on the beach and discovers ways we can help to stop the harm we are all causing.
Our workshops are designed to help and encourage everyone to be creative and learn a new skill in a fun & exciting environment. They enable children to be independent, creative and expressive. The aim of the workshops, is not simply for students to gain an understanding of the theme or plot but also to explore modern issues in relation to the themes.
These workshops are designed for 5 - 11 year-olds and typically last for 90 minutes, although they can be adjusted to fit your requirements. The workshops are led by two actors and together with props, parts of costumes, masks, musical instruments and sound system, provide tools for the students to use to create the environment of the given piece. Each workshop comes with follow-up study notes and fact sheets.
