Playhouse Primary Partnership 2020/21

An update to this year's Playhouse

It’s around this time we would usually be looking for 6 Playhouse Partners for 2020/21. However due to the disruption to our 2019/ 2020 partnership, due to Covid-19, this year we’ll be giving our 2019/2020 partners the opportunity to complete the project with the chance for their pupils to perform.

Playhouse is a unique performance opportunity in The Drum for KS2 pupils & exceptional CPD for Teachers, supporting a broad and balanced curriculum.

Teachers will be given guidance and training to direct a brand-new play for Key Stage 2 pupils, commissioned from leading playwrights as part of the Playhouse Festival.

Please get in touch with our Learning Department by email here for more information and to be put on our mailing list for future applications.

REACH Workshops

Enhancing young people's transferable skills using professional theatre skills to reach your students' full potential

We usually offer 6 different Reach workshops for schools, colleges, and universities covering Speech, Writing, Reading, Resilience, Devising, and Potential.

However, due to Covid-19, we are now operating with a smaller team and reduced capacity. If you are interested in organising a workshop with us

Please email all enquiries here and we’ll talk you through what we are currently able to offer.
