Happy Half Term!

Well, what a term it’s been so far! What with the launch of our new shows – The Time Capsule and The Sword in the Stone AND sell out shows of Let’s Eat Grandma and Stig of the Dump, we’re worn out here at Theatre For Schools and ready for our half term break! We’ve gained so many new followers this term which is really encouraging. Theatre and the arts are such an important part of children’s development and education and it is so nice to have all your support. Wishing you all a lovely, safe half term holiday!

Sword in the Stone – new for 2014!

We are proud to announce Image Theatre’s brand new participatory show for primary schools – ‘The Sword in the Stone’, written and directed by their new artistic director, Ian McCracken.

This interactive musical based on the mystical story of ‘The Sword in the Stone’ follows the life of Arthur, a young squire destined to become King. Guided by Merlin he has many adventures culminating in him successfully pulling the sword from the stone and unwittingly fulfilling the legend’s prophecy.

We have had some fabulous reviews of this show so far and teachers have loved the themes of kindness, compassion, bravery and (to quote from their song), the focus on ‘learning every single day’, ‘you can do things if you try’ and ‘believe in yourself’.

With beautiful medieval costumes, state of the art sets, magical puppets and wonderful music by Robert Hyman this wholesome show will continue Image’s tradition of providing the best touring theatre for primary schools.

The show requires the participation of the whole audience as the chorus and ten children to play small parts.

They are touring throughout 2014 in the following areas:

North London
Cheshire, Flintshire, Wrexham
Essex
Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire
