Weekly Sessions For ages 0 upwards

We work with the little ones all the way through to high school and can select the right timings for your group to have a regular weekly session. We will appoint a drama specialist to your center or school and deliver a different theme or exploration each week for you. With this program, you can also let us know what you might be working on in class, to see if we have a session that aligns with this at the right time.

We have a wide variety of themes and workshops and can always design a new one just for you.

Single themed Incursions
Ages 3+

Are you looking for one off session to boost creativity in your center or school, then we can make this work for you! This also is a great way to try out our sessions and see if it something that you may want to introduce regularly. We often visit centers and school with the same program for each year group, why change something, when you have found what works for you!

From 45 – 60 mins sessions

Enjoy our themed incursions spread out over 6 sessions.  This 6-week exploration incursion is highly recommended to get true depth in learning and really explore the story and characters and practice for the final performance. Families love these performances!

Performance Workshops

We deliver a theme or story workshop, then practice by either following narration for the younger ones, or working as an ensemble to have a performance in a short space of time. This can be a half day for ages 3 – 7, or a full day for ages 7 +
