How a Make a Play works

Assembly

Drama workshops treasure island showA Make a Play day begins with an assembly to introduce the pupils and teachers to the play and the characters they will be playing. This gives our teacher/narrator the opportunity to explain the story and also the tasks ahead for the pupils and the teachers.

Learning the scenes

scrooge group splatThe 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.

Making the set and props

The Show

Drama workshops The planAt 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!
