In support of World Theatre Day for Children & Young People, Theatre Workout is offering a FREE outreach workshop to one of our local schools in Greenwich, worth over £500!
We know, through personal experience, how beneficial Drama can be to children and young people. Working in partnership with the Drama and Theatre Education Alliance (DTEA) we want Drama to have the same status as Art and Music on the National Curriculum.
The DTEA is inviting schools, universities, theatres and other venues to invite their MP to see a performance, class, workshop etc and see how students respond. So, we're offering our local schools the opportunity to have a free workshop.
Led by our Founder and Director, Adam Milford, an actor and Drama Specialist with almost 30 years experience, our offer includes:
An event lasting up to two hours, with either one, two-hour workshop, or two, one-hour workshops.
It can be on (almost) any aspect of Drama, such as storytelling, acting, devising, or Stage Combat
It can be tailored to current curriculum projects
Up to 30 children can take part
Any school who wants to benefit from this offer should contact Theatre Workout ASAP.
As part of the event, we will send a joint invitation to our MP, Matthew Pennycook, to attend, along with local press. They may want to talk with children to learn how they feel about drama.
This is a celebration of drama in schools, not a promotional event for Theatre Workout.
