Bringing Books to Life: Dance Workshop
Bringing Books to Life dance workshops give children a new, active experience of books and storytelling.
Our choreographer will work with each class, developing responses to the books through language, movement and dance. We use a range of techniques and music, and differentiate each session to suit the interests and age of the children.
Book choices include over 20 of the UK's most popular and beloved children's books, from Roald Dahl to Julia Donaldson.
Around the World in 80 Days: A School Musical
Philomena Fogg has a plan. A rather fabulous plan in fact. And nothing, not even a bhangra-loving elephant, or unbuilt railways, or the formidably fiendish Detective Fix, will get in her way. She and her French companion Passepartout have bet a tidy fortune that they can travel around the world in only 80 days. All they need to do is stay on time, count the sunrises, and do a bit of singing and dancing - with your help of course!
Journey around the world with our primary school adaptation of the classic novel, exploring geography, history, and the power of believing in the impossible.
Imagine the children of your school learning and performing a Shakespeare play - and the entire process taking just one day.
You can choose from Midsummer Nights Dream or The Tempest, with other options available upon request.
We will work with Reception to Year 6 class by class, using sections of the play that have been tailored for each age group. At the end of the day all year groups perform the entire play to each other.
Story Explorer: Drama Workshop
Our drama workshops bring children into the heart of a book by encouraging them to live and breathe the story.
We have taken our favourite techniques drawn from professional theatre and turned them into drama games and exercises which inspire children to harness their imaginations. Our expert drama facilitators are masters at turning a book from something children are told to read into something they want to experience.
Choose a special selection of books including stories by Neil Gaiman and David Walliams.
In one school day a professional West End professional can lead up to seven sessions of up to 30 children from Reception to Year 6.
Our shows are specially written for children from Reception to Year 6. Each performance can have an audience of up to 250 children, with larger schools having multiple performances.
All of our World Book Day 2020 options comes with a resource pack to build on your visit when you return to the classroom. For our performances we will also provide you with the music and lyrics in advance so that the children can sing-a-long with the show!
