Schools' Partnerships and Workshops

The Take Part Department has strong links with local schools and offers both pantomime and Key Stage 3 workshops for secondary schools as well as bespoke workshops for both primary and secondary ages based around a chosen theme. Our workshops can be delivered both in schools and here at The Theatre. We have an excellent network of theatre practitioners who have skills in delivering all kinds of different workshops from Shakespeare to Brecht and from mask to devising.

Our panto package offers schools a morning workshop at The Theatre learning about all the different character traits, elements and devices used in panto. The workshop culminates with students splitting into groups so that they can recreate their own potted panto to perform to each other and practice the skills they have learnt. This is then followed by a ticket to watch the inhouse matinee performance afterwards!
