Drama and Dance Workshops, Shows and Storytelling Sessions for Schools

Freshwater Theatre Company has been delivering educational workshops, shows and storytelling sessions in schools since 1996.

As one of the largest theatre-in-education companies in the UK, we provide high quality drama workshops and shows to support history, geography, science, modern foreign languages, maths, literacy, computing, cross-curricular and PSHE topics.

We have workshops for Early Years, KS1, KS2, and KS3. We also offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teachers.

 

What We Offer

  • Our interactive drama or dance Workshops involve one facilitator visiting the school and working with a class of up to 30 children at a time for one hour. These sessions use a variety of drama activities to explore the topic.

  • Our Large Group Activities involve one facilitator visiting the school and working with up to 120 children at a time for one hour. These sessions involve interactive storytelling through the medium of drama in which every child will feel involved.

  • Our History Shows involve two facilitators visiting your school with a small set, props and costumes and working with up to 120 children at a time for 80 minutes. The children will take part in solving tasks related to the historical time period.

  • Our History Days are available to a maximum of two classes and involve two facilitators performing a history show in the morning and two 45-minute workshops, led by characters from the show, during the afternoon.
