Booking with us couldn’t be easier, see the bookings page for information on how to contact us about booking, or fill in the booking enquiry form.
After we have discussed your requirements, we will send you a confirmation of booking and an invoice for 50% of the total balance to be passed on to your finance department.
At least 14 days before our visit, we will send our Pre-Performance check for you to complete and send back to us and also our Teachers’ resource pack for your perusal and use.
We will email again the day before our visit to confirm attendance.
The day of the production we will arrive by the time stated and after work is completed we will email you the invoice for the remaining balance.
We need a minimum of 3 metres by 2 metres. This makes us ideal for classrooms right the way up to drama studios, theatres and school halls.
We are happy to perform to an entire year group (or even two smaller year groups in some instances.) We recommend that the play is seen by a maximum of 150 students at a time, statistically more information is retained when this is the case. The reason for this is that our plays use direct addresses of the audience as they are monologues – giving everybody in the room eye contact is important to us.
There is a short section of ‘Alphabet of a Teenager’ that we ask schools to sensor before our visit, as they may want us to use alternative language to what is written, however the major content of the productions cannot be altered. As you can imagine, fielding 50 requests for content adaption per term is impractical and unfair to our performers who have learnt the script in its entirety.
Our workshops, however, are entirely malleable – please do contact us for more details on how we can tailor a specific workshop for you.
Yes, you are welcome to view it by emailing us and we will send you the CRB number of the facilitator before we visit.
Absolutely. We constantly find ourselves partaking in such days and would be happy to accommodate such an event at your school.
Yes, by contacting other schools within a 20 mile radius that you feel may be interested in the programme on the days surrounding your performance.
We would be more than happy to split travel costs between all of the schools who have booked with us, provided they are on consecutive days. Let us know if you would like us to contact surrounding schools on your behalf.
When we were trialling our first production of ‘Alphabet of a Teenager’ we showed students two versions, one using one actor and one using two actors’. The students unanimously voted in favour of the monologue because they felt more engaged with the story and there was obviously a much greater deal of eye contact with just one person.
Statistically, the information retained in the monologue version was 5% higher and this provoked us to use monologues as our chosen option for storytelling at the moment.
We have an adapted programme of Alphabet of a Teenager for KS4 and 6th form. Please contact us for more details.
Our ‘Over the Top’ production is also suitable for all ages above 11, including KS4 and 6th form.
Please kindly refer to the casting section of this website.
We have visited many schools and colleges across the UK. Here is a selection of our previous visits:
Bedford School, Plymouth College, Ash Manor School – Surrey, Wyvern Technology College – Hampshire, Denstone College – Staffordshire, Wolverley CE Secondary School – Nr Birmingham, Corpus Christi Catholic College – Leeds, Weald of Kent Academy. Shoreham Academy – West Sussex, Westcliff High School for Girls – Essex, Eastlea Community School – London, Sholing Technology College – Southampton.
We are often contracted by external bodies such as Education Business Partnerships to deliver the work under their recommendation to the schools that they work with, as well as local councils and are starting to build relationships with Police forces and local councils around the United Kingdom.
We are currently taking bookings until July 2013.
At the bottom of our production pages, there are testimonials from students and members of staff from previous visits.
Please do drop us an email or give us a call. We will never try and belittle other companies or try and persuade you to book with us instead. Nevertheless, we’d be happy to discuss what your current programme offers and how ours may be similar, or indeed, have a different approach.
