touring THEATRE FOR SCHOOLS
N-Act for schools
All our workshops and performances are designed to be inclusive, engaging, provoke questions and discussions, and ultimately benefit students in a variety of different educational environments. Offered as productions, workshops or Drama GCSE and BTEC packages, we have developed a range of options each designed to support Drama and PHSE teaching across all ages.
‘I think this will have a huge impact on our generation as they can see what really happens when you’re involved with the wrong crowd.’ (student having watched ‘Friend’)
‘Amazing! I enjoyed the performance and the workshop has shown me new things’ (student having watched ‘Linked’)
All N-Act plays are written and directed by Artistic Director Dr Sharon Williams. Using a fresh approach to modern problems we deliver the information in an engaging and enjoyable format

Building on our popular primary workshop, ‘The Big W’, we are excited to announce a series of exciting new workshops for 2019. Aimed at primary schools, specifically years 3, 4 and 5 we have developed a series of thought-provoking workshops covering the hugely topical themes of internet safety, gangs and knife crime, and mental health.
All plays come with Information Sheets and suggested Follow-up Work
