Playhouse: a School Play with a difference...
Playhouse is an excellent example of how drama and performance can inspire, support and develop learning skills within the Key Stage 2 Curriculum. Playhouse can support learning in: speaking & listening, PE, history, geography, science and art & design. The project excels in providing high-quality teacher training - and not just in theatre skills, but in supporting dynamic teaching within the classroom. Schools work towards a performance of a brand new play that makes up a festival of work that will take place at TR2 10th - 12th July 2013.
This year the following schools and groups are taking part in the project:
Boringdon Primary School
College Road Primary School
Fourlanesend Primary School
Marlborough Primary School
St Paul's R.C. Primary School
Theatre Royal Plymouth Young Company
They will be performing the following plays:
The Giant Killers by Oladipo Agboluaje
A Thousand Reasons Not To Fly by Dan Jamieson
The Story of The Seal Wife by Brendan Murray
The Genius by Phil Porter
Playhouse in Plymouth is supported by Bond Pearce, Creative Learning sponsors.
