Story Explorer:
Drama Workshop


Experience books from a new perspective using the skills and techniques of professional theatre

With the guidance of an expert drama facilitator the children experience books from a new perspective as they develop their feelings and thoughts about your chosen story.

Drama exercises enable the children to imagine and explore the characters, context and topics from new angles.

Each drama workshop can last between 35 and 90 minutes depending on your chosen book/topic, and we can work with children from EYFS to KS2.

The Growing Library

Your children will gain deep insights into the book you select as we use the highest quality drama to focus their natural playfulness and harness their imaginations.

These titles are available now and we’re creating new Story Explorer workshops all the time.

If you’d like to work on a different book just let us know. With advance notice and for the right book, we can make your workshop next at no extra charge!
