” After getting knocked out in an early Tudor football match, Splatacus wakes up press ganged as the Cabin boy of Francis Drake. And so begins his adventures as the first juggler to circumnavigate the world and fight the Spanish Armada, finally to be reunited with his family at the Globe theatre in time to give Master Shakespeare some inspiration.”
Elizabethans, Francis Drake, Shakespeare, Drama.

. . . how a Splats Circus and Shakespeare day works
- Whole School activity
- Suitable for Key Stages 1, 2, 3
- Teaching materials
- Interactive show or workshops
- Confident, independent and creative learners
Organisation -We can teach up to 4 groups in a day. The pupils perform the show with the splats teacher who acts as the narrator. This helps cement the whole play together and of course provides a cue for the pupils. The Splats director brings props, pieces of costume and music/sound effects.
Performance – The workshops are active, fun and a real challenge for all, created with physical theatre, movement, circus, dance and scripted character acting. As we learn the show and perform it in just one day, pupils are up on stage before they have any time to think about nerves.
Please do not hesitate to drop us a line to talk through your specific needs and aims for the day, we are here to help. ;0)
