Hobgoblin Theatre Company, an established UK touring Theatre in Education company, offer 6 productions specifically tailored to the Key Stage 2 History Syllabus.
Each production is an hour long and has been written specifically to complement the particular unit that it covers.
What sets us apart from other theatre companies? Our plays are interactive. During the hour of the show we stop the action at specific points and sit down with the children in small groups to discuss the characters and scenarios that they have seen. As well as giving the children a chance to voice their opinions and feelings about the play/situation it's a great way to reinforce the factual elements of the story. A genuine educational resource. With the added option of an extra drama workshop to follow the play we offer a great introduction or finale to your history topic work.
The 6 productions we currently offer are: "Perseus & Medusa" (GREEKS), "The Wall" (ROMANS), "A Viking Tale" (VIKINGS), "The Eyam Plague" (PLAGUE), "The Workhouse Boy" (VICTORIANS) and "The Thompsons' War" (WWII).
We bring everything we need with us to perform in your school hall. It really couldn't be simpler for you to book a professional theatrical experience for your children.
