Secondary Theatre Production

Due to access and mobility problems most of our students do not get the opportunity to attend a live show so it brings great pleasure when we can bring a theatre performance into the school. We will book a production with strong themes of anti-bullying and friendship which will heavily support the teaching of PSHE and social skills. The opportunity to see a show will be engaging and enhance all pupil learning experiences.

“Our productions educate young audiences through the powers of entertainment and imagination, whilst at the same time encouraging children to read for pleasure and explore their creative abilities.

We balance humour with serious messages, evoke emotions in a sensitive and relevant manner, and encourage appropriate and valuable audience reaction to a wide range of moral and ethical issues.

We are passionate about promoting the performing arts to a generation who may not already have the experience of visiting a theatre, in the hope that this might inspire a lifelong interest. Our wonderfully constructed sets and special effects, adaptable to any venue, allow for this experience to be enjoyed by the whole school, in the safety of their own surroundings.

Every one of our shows is packed with fun, laughter, excitement, great music and larger than life characters. Written specifically for children by our experienced team of professionals, our scripts, costumes, scenery and special effects all combine to ensure that from the very beginning, the audience will enjoy a truly magical theatrical experience.”

£800 will pay for M and M Theatre Production to attend our school and perform in front of over 100 students.
