Visiting schools benefit from Unity’s notable resources and experienced staff who specialise in creating educational projects for learners from Foundation to KS4 as well as college and university groups.
Unity Christmas Production – With a mixture of physical theatre, original music scores, stunning sets and educational themes, Unity have presented much loved traditional stories in unconventional ways for over 21 years. Building on the success of previous productions they offer a comprehensive theatre experience, including festive favourites, educational performances and regular workshops/ post–show discussions to examine themes and content.
Workshops provide an excellent opportunity for Q & A sessions with key staff members and the chance for pupils to meet the cast of the show. In the last year, Unity have hosted countless sessions with many of the companies forming their theatre programme including Told by an Idiot (Fahrenheit Twins), Fevered Sleep (The Forest) and Improbable Theatre Companies (Panic).
For an unforgettable experience, schools may book the entire auditorium with ice lollies ordered on request and return bus travel offering a safe and convenient passage from school and back. Material targets specified areas of the National Curriculum including speaking and listening, group interaction and responding to performance.
