What We Offer
At Theatre Tots we have a strong belief in the value of drama as an essential means of developing children’s imagination, language skills and confidence. Drama, music and dance are inclusive and holistic, encouraging children to engage using their bodies and minds – whilst having lots of fun!
Theatre Tots Drama Workshops are specifically designed for Early Years foundation stage. They are flexible and adaptable. You can choose from our existing list of themes or we can design a bespoke workshop to fit in with the work you are doing in class. They may be a way of introducing a theme to your class, complementing a topic you are already exploring or they may round off a half or term’s work and be part of an event.
Our end of term SHOWS which can provide an intensive drama experience for a large number of children.
We believe that drama is particularly beneficial for children on the autistic spectrum and with speech and language delay. We run a successful regular workshop for autistic children in conjunction with Lewisham Council and would be very happy to use our experience and expertise with schools and other councils. For schools in linguistically mixed areas we offer bilingual workshops as a way of introducing children to other languages.
Our Workshops focus on the imagination, language development, social, physical and vocal awareness in a confidence building environment. We bring with us costumes, props and imagination ready for a fun, exciting and unique session. This typically includes games, mimes and imitation, tongue twisters, costumes, stories, characters, sock puppets, props and songs.
We offer 1 hour or half / full day sessions at a competitive price with discounts for early, regular and repeat bookings. These can be one off or regular bookings, during the school day and after school. We specialise in the Early Years but can offer workshops to Years 1 and 2 if you would like to make a full day of it! We ask that there is a maximum of 30 children per session and can do as many sessions as you require and can fit in.
For children’s centres and nurseries we have programmes for the 0 -2’s as well so can cover all age ranges. Parents and carers are very welcome and encouraged to join in the fun!
