Pre-theatre activities

Each class that chooses to see our production as a school trip will have the option of receiving show programs prior to the event. Each program is loaded with information about the show as well as word finds, trivia and puzzles. It will also include a colouring contest and the entries can be handed in at the theatre. The winners will be judged according to grade level and receive free theatre tickets for their family along with a cash donation to their school.

Where do our shows fit into a teacher’s lesson plan?

 

After seeing our show, teachers will be able to create independent and group activities based on the Creative Process. Through critical analysis, students can develop and express their own initial reaction and response to the work and communicate and reflect on what they have experienced.

Independent activities for students could include:

  • Descriptions of the show (comparing two versions of a story character)
  • Sensory Impressions (writing a descriptive paragraph)
  • More about location of the show (making a map)

Group Activities for students could include:

  • “Let’s Talk About …” (discussing the story)
  • Variations – rewriting a version of a tale
  • Different Points of View (re-telling the story from each characters perspective)
