Theatre Workshops

Working around our children's productions, in the morning we work with the children on activities linked to the productions themes, this might be a theatrical tour, workshop and craft making activity. Then in the afternoon they will go to see the afternoon 1.30pm performance.

 


 

The Princess and the Pea 

Come and Explore: Theatre day

Spend the day exploring the themes and story in a variety of practical ways before going to see the show. In this new fantastical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, writer Mike Kenny and the inventive tutti frutti team create a funny, original, beautiful retelling of this familiar tale.

Available on 23, 24, 25 26 Sep, 30 Sept & 3 Oct
Time: 9.30am
Cost: £10 per pupil (includes workshop and the show, book via box office)
Suitable for Reception – Year 4
Capacity: 30 pupils per workshop

 
Previous Example: Hare and Tortoise

A class came for a tour of the theatre, where they were read a letter from Tortoise that explained the Hare had left parts of the story lying around the theatre and asked for their help. After a tour, the class had a practical workshop exploring the themes of opposites, seasons and friendship.

After lunch the class made a hare or tortoise puppet, before going to see the show.

"Thanks for a really wonderful day. The children couldn't stop talking about it on the coach and at school over the next few days."
- Sylvia Klays, Hempland Primary

"Thank you for a truly wonderful day! The children gained so much from all the experiences; memories to treasure!"
- Louise Leaf, Bootham Juniors
