Splats Entertainment The Sugar Show Healthy Play Day

The Sugar Show school workshops

Workshop and show looking at how sugar affects the body, healthy choices, how adverts work and how can we stay healthy.

Splats school workshop rehearsals are active, fun and a real challenge for all.

Alongside scripted character acting we use physical theatre, circus skills, dance, music, magic, mime, puppetry and mask work to help tell the story. This enables pupils to express themselves through a variety of means and of course adds great variety and enjoyment for the audience and participants.

As we learn the school workshop show and perform it in just one day, pupils are up on stage before they have any time to think about nerves. Of course longer term rehearsed plays are of great value too but the “Splats Technique’ provides a way to break through for many pupils who may otherwise be nervous and an opportunity to shine in a very relaxed environment for all.

During the school workshop we teach using costume, props and set that the children can make as part of the day. Masks act as a great way to express emotion and movement and of course we bring costumes and props to add fun and colour to the production.

Splats Entertainment Play Masks

Our teacher acts as the narrator which helps cement the whole play together and of course acts as a cue for the pupils. Our main tip for the class teachers is to enjoy the process as although it sometimes seems an impossible task for our teacher to make the show happen it always works brilliantly and any slight mistakes or changes that happen can be taken in our stride and actually often add to the fun!

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!

We can teach up to 210 pupils in a day (more on request) for cirucs. Our drama school workshops usually you will find that you can fit in the Assembly and three lessons in the morning and one more lesson and the show in the afternoon. These lessons should be an hour long and allow about 45 minutes for the show. The lessons are very well choreographed and planned so it is possible to learn the scene in that time.

For bookings and prices for our circus and drama days and shows please fill in our enquiry form and we will get right back to you. Prices range from £220- £360 plus vat depending on length of workshop and amount of pupils.
