Assembly


Our directors assembly to brief the actors on the exciting task ahead and to guide the teachers for the prop making tasks.

Learning The Scenes


The play is split into 4 scenes so the classes need to be in 4 groups. These can be up to 35 and we can adapt for smaller groups, sometimes they learn two scenes each.

Rehearsals are active, fun and a real challenge for all

Lessons are ideally an hour and about 45 minutes for the show, but this is flexible depending on your timings.

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 of course it works best with an audience!

No time for any nerves - just straight to the stage in a fun, light-hearted way
