Delivered nationally across the UK, the Playhouse Project is a unique participatory national theatre project that connects schools with professional theatres, scriptwriters and theatremakers, so they may be inspired and empowered to experience the benefits of professional theatre-making.
Enriching CPD days for teachers, fun and exciting workshops for children and collaboration with professional playwrights specially commissioned to develop scripts for large classes of Key stage 2 children, combine to empower teachers to bring drama into the classroom, offer children a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform in some of the UK’s flagship theatres, and explore heartfelt, authentic conversations about big issues in the world today.
The Playhouse Project offers an enriching and rewarding life experience for children and teachers that has a long-term transformative impact.
