Watch a Make a Play Day in Action

  • Make a Play day

    The play is performed by our Splats narrator with four classes. The shows are created with physical theatre, movement, circus, dance and scripted character acting. The Splats director brings props, pieces of costume and music/sound effects. We perform 30 minutes before the end of the school day for family, friends and pupils.

  • How it works

    A Make a Play day is split into 4 scenes with a max class size of 35, so 140 pupils can take part. If you have small groups you can make 2 groups and learn two scenes each. Each group takes turn to learn their scene and when not with the splats teacher they make props and scenery for the play in their classroom.

  • The Show

    At the end of the day all the classes come together to perform the show. The splats teacher acts as narrator which guides the play along and helps cue the pupils. We very much recommend inviting parents and any classes not taking part to watch the show as it works best with an audience!
