Our aim is to help students learn English through theatre. Since 2003 we have been performing in Catalonia, the Basque Country and Galicia with shows that are 100% in English.
We provide pedagogical material to accompany the plays with exercises created by qualified English teachers, as well as downloadable songs and listening exercises. We work with professional musicians to create songs especially for the shows (infants and primary).
The vocabulary and the themes of our plays have been carefully chosen and tailored for the level, interests and ages of the students. Our actors speak clearly, using repetition and visual clues to help students follow the story, and our audience is often asked to participate, adding to the fun and enjoyment of our shows. We use music, dance and puppetry to enhance the experience.
We have two types of format: small shows with one actor or two, depending on the show (for groups of 60 – 80 students) and big shows with three actors (for groups of around 160 students).
We perform in schools or theatres and only ask for minimal technical requirements related to the space and access to electricity, in order to be able to plug in our lights and music systems.
For big shows: actors need at least one hour to set up, a table and 4 chairs. Acting space 6 m x 4 m (theatre or gym).
For small shows : actors need 30 minutes to set up, a table and 1 chair. Acting space 4m x 3 m (gym or classroom).
