How a Make a Play works
The play is split into 4 scenes with a max class size of 35. If you have small groups you can make 2 groups and learn two scenes each or 3 groups one class can do two scenes. Usually you can fit assembly and three lessons in the morning and one more lesson and the show in the afternoon. These lessons are from 45 minutes to an hour and about 30 minutes for the show.
At the end of the day all the classes come together to perform the show. The splats teacher acts as narrator which helps to guide the play along and of course acts as a cue for the pupils. We very much recommend inviting parents and any classes not taking part to watch the show as of course it works best with an audience!
Please drop us a line with the date/s you require and approximate amount of pupils and we will send you a quote by return. We offer discounts on multiple days and you can choose from our selection of Make a Play days and book over a full range of age groups. We have shows that are suitable for the youngest to oldest pupils and most shows can be adapted for all ages.
You will be amazed at what is achieved in a day
WHERE DO YOU TRAVEL TO ?
We travel across mainland Britain.
DO YOU NEED ANYTHING ELSE?
We need a sound system and although not essential access to any lighting or staging you have..
HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE?
It is always one Splats artist per session of up to 35 pupils. Please talk to us if you have more pupils.
DO WE NEED TO DO ANY PREPARATION BEFORE THE DAY?
All the days are designed to be self contained i.e. you don’t need to do anything before the day. There is a teaching pack where you will have props and masks you can make out of card, paper, paint and glue. You may want to order stock.
WHAT TIME IS THE SHOW?
The show is performed thirty minutes before the end of your day so it can coincide with the finish of the day.
DO YOU NEED THE HALL??
We do need the hall all day except for lunch of course.
HOW MANY MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF DO YOU NEED FOR SUPPORT?
We need the staff ratio that you would normally have plus our Splats teacher. Your staff will be responsible for the pupils tertiary care.
CAN WE PERFORM THE SHOW OURSELVES AGAIN AFTER THE DAY?
Once Splats have created the show with the school on the date given, then the booking school has the right to perform the show twice the same term but must credit verbally, in programs, posters, websites, newspapers, social media, recorded media and all communications that the show is \’Created by Splats Entertainment.\’ At the end of term the copyright reverts to Splats Entertainment and the school will need to apply if they wish to perform the show again. Please speak to Splats office for further advice.

Dear Staff at Splats, I am writing to thank you for our wonderful workshop sessions last week during our Shakespeare week. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and performance and it was wonderful to see so many children coming out of their shells and fully embracing the drama. Both adults (staff and parents) and children all commented on how much they enjoyed the two days spent with Johannas (apologies if I have spelt this incorrectly!) Thank you once again Many thanks
Just a quick email on behalf of the whole school to thank Mark and your company for a fantastic day last Wednesday at Burnham Market Primary School. Mark led the school in a performance of the Wind in the Willows and the children got so much out of the day, as well as the staff. I took a club in the library the following lunch time and some of the children were choosing books and then performing the story with freeze frames!
It was very impressive how the pupils understood and were able to perform a Shakespeare comedy so proficiently in such a short space of time. Many thanks to Harry for his brilliant leadership throughout the day and to all the parents who came to be the audience for the show. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
