Put on a Play in a Week with Creation Theatre

October Half Term


'Something wicked this way comes!' We're not wicked, but we are back for another week of digital Play in a Week workshops for ages 5-16 this October, with an added spooky twist. Join us for some classic Creation storytelling where we?ll be meeting Shakespearean ghosts, exploring Hungarian castles and falling into fantastical fairy tales, as well as putting on our own Zoom play to be performed online on Friday. Our virtual School of Creativity building will also be back open for one week only, filled with extra videos and activities from our Professors of Creepiness to help our young ghost-busters get ready for their Halloween performance.

All workshops will be delivered live over Zoom daily by professional actors and theatre-makers. This is a Half Term activity we can guarantee will go ahead, and with no social distancing or masks in sight the only thing to worry about is bumping into a ghost!

As with all our Play in a Week workshops, the groups will be presented with three options of classic texts at the beginning of the week, and they will choose what they want to work on. To find out more about how our online workshops run, click here.

Creation Home Delivery

Autumn Term 2020


Our sell-out Creation Home Delivery programme is back from 7 September with 12 new stories to explore across the term for ages 5-19. Led live over Zoom by a professional actor, each week our members embark on a digital adventure where we bring some of literature's best-loved stories to life as well as introduce performance, theatre-making and storytelling skills. To keep the creativity alive all week we also send out weekly storytelling packages in the post too, full of extra activities, information and creative challenges to be enjoyed at home.

Our sessions offer a wide range of benefits including creativity, confidence-building, literacy and general life skills as well as being a mask-free after-school activity that children across schools and bubbles can enjoy with each other in real time.

What's more, we're offering FREE TASTER SESSIONS across all our groups this term, and as we're all online our members can join in from anywhere in the country (or world!) so there's really nothing stopping you from giving it a go!

You can book your free taster session by calling our Box Office on 01865 766266 and you can find more information at our website: https://www.creationtheatre.co.uk/education/creation-home-delivery/

"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! By far the best use of technology for an online activity. Thoughtful, creative, engaging, educational, inspiring? and the little packages each week were the icing on the cake. Kids loved it, I got an hour of peace (or more!) and smiles all round. Bravo."
