School Frenzy Drama Project
Duration: Academic Year 2008-9
What it is:
A collaboration between The Egg Theatre at the Theatre Royal, Bath, Norton Hill School and selected primary schools, to put on a performance at The Egg in the summer.
The project has two stages. The first involves taking part in 14 performance-based workshops in their schools. The second stage will involve the two secondary schools each working with three primaries to produce a play (from an existing script) for performance at the Egg, the Theatre Royal’s theatre for children and young people.
This project aims to ease the transition from primary to secondary school as pupils and teachers take part, together. It also enhances children’s speaking and listening skills, builds self-confidence and inspires children to take an interest in drama and the theatre.
