Play for a Day!

Play For a Day

Drama workshops can be used to introduce or conclude topic work, to ease transition, to promote inclusion and for revision. The play performed at the end of the day is a 10-15 minute ensemble piece using inventive theatre techniques such as physical theatre. We encourage that if you have room, the rest of the school and parents are invited to watch the play at the end of the day. Play in a Day has many benefits as not only it introduces theatre skills and techniques they may not have previously used in school but it also increases confidence as pupils are encouraged to take part by praises given throughout the day, it helps to introduce specific issues in a creative and non-judgmental way, it empowers the pupils who find solutions to issues collectively, it improves concentration and gives a great sense of achievement as all pupils feel they have done a very good job at the end of the day, pupils also work as a team and improve their communication skills, etc. Talk to us about what specific topic or issue you would like covered and we will recommend a play for you. We provide a certificate of achievement for the students involved which provides an even greater sense of achievement at the end of the day.

Feedback From Past Play For a Day! Workshops:

"I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and feel the pupils did too. As our school unfortunately no longer offers Drama as part of the curriculum, I felt this was a wonderful opportunity for them to express themselves in a more free and creative way. I hope it inspired them to continue expressing themselves and I know they were stimulated and entertained throughout. I know the pupils enjoyed the session as there were a lot of smiles on faces throughout the session! They were enthusiastic and eager to act out their ideas. From this session I think they gained confidence and a good understanding of the importance of team work and collaboration. I liked the warm up activities and how these were later incorporated into the pupils’ plays to provide a sense of continuum. I liked the relaxed atmosphere."
