"Creativity now is as important in education as Literacy, and we should treat it with the same status." - Sir Ken Robinson


EDUCATION



The huge cultural mix found on this island often leads children to emphasise the differences they see around them, whether in language, customs or race.

Our objective, is to teach the pupil to create awareness of our cultural connections and not our differences. The aim of this process is to learn to enjoy, understand and have fun with theatre.

The Education workshops are divided into the following age groups:

• 6 - 8 year olds         • 9 - 11 year olds        • 12 - 16 year olds

Educate



We have developed 36 individual workshops for each age group. These can be selected as stand alone one off workshops, a small group of sessions for a fun day, or as a complete package. Some workshop are applicable to each age group, for example, The Scene Setting Workshop, whereas others are age specific.

Workshops for the youngest include make up, costume, story telling. Workshops for the middle group include Introduction to the Playwright, Improvisation, and Character Relationships. Workshops for the adolescents include Text Analysis, Character Motivation and Relevance to Time Period.

The complete course finale (9-16 Years) is the unique opportunity to participate in a combined island-wide schools performance, connecting children from different backgrounds, cultures and language base.
