We typically run 60-120 minute workshops with up to 30 children at any one time and can offer special day rates for multiple classes. We are also able to provide two different topics on the same day for different year groups.
Online sessions are jointly hosted by the teacher and our actor and may or may not be recorded, depending on the preference of the school. Ideally workshops take place in a school hall with a large screen, however, they can also work extremely well in a classroom, with desks pushed aside. Our Risk Assessment document is available upon request and is updated regularly to comply with all current advice and guidelines.
Online workshops are delivered live by professional actors and typically last 60-75 minutes each. They are structured in the same way as an on-site visit and have the advantage of utilising the benefits of technology – in particular, virtual backgrounds, enabling actors to transport children back in time, to any era or location. School will require a good internet connection and ideally a large screen to project our actor on to, so all the children have good visibility.
Yes - the very nature of our workshops being so visual and experiential, has led to extremely positive feedback from teachers.
Yes - children with special educational needs really benefit and enjoy our workshops.
At the Drama Hut we employ skilled costumed actors who use the Performing Arts, to help children truly experience a subject, complementing and enhancing learning in the classroom. Through improvisation, role play, movement and song, we help to bring the curriculum to life. Whether you choose to have us visit you online or on-site, our workshops are delivered live and are fully interactive. Prices start at £150 for a single workshop, with discounts available when multiple sessions/different topics are booked.
Whether it's a history subject, creative writing workshop, PSHE or an opportunity to celebrate a significant person or event, let us help you to inspire learning with a Drama Hut workshop.
Choose from a vast range of topics or let us create a bespoke workshop for your school. All we require on the day of our visit, is either a clear space to work in and a member of staff to observe or join in the experience or if online, we can reach you from our our zoom platform or your own school portal.
"Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools."
