Playhouse 2013

Playhouse 2019

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 will work towards performances of brand new plays that make up a festival of work, to take place in The Drum.

This year’s partner schools are:

Boringdon Primary School
College Road Primary
Mount Wise Community Primary
Plymouth School of Creative Arts
Prince Rock Primary School
Shakespeare Primary

This year’s plays are:

Solo, Duo, Squad by Jonathan Hall
Our time with Miss X by Rina Vergano
The Force of Nature by Danusia Iwaszko
The Seal Wife by Brendan Murray

Playhouse in Plymouth is supported by Womble Bond Dickinson, Engagement and Learning sponsors.
