The Big Drama Day – A play in a day

9:30am - 2:30pm
Monday 6 February
The Malthouse Theatre, King's

Students: We have space for all ten schools to attend with four students from Key Stage 3.

Event objective: This collaborative workshop will see students from across the partnership work together to build confidence, develop communication skills and empower their creativity whilst putting on a play in a day. The stimulus comes from passages of novels from a diverse range of writers from all corners of the world and the play will be an opportunity to discuss what inclusivity means to our students and look at their commonalities as young people in East Kent.

By working with new people, the event aims to breakdown boundaries and improve social cohesion, whilst improving communication and team-working. We hope this unique and enriching workshop will positively impact wellbeing and resilience and provide a memorable experience for all involved, as well as developing an interest in going on to study GCSE drama.

Practicalities: Students to attend in their own comfortable clothes and to bring a water-bottle. Lunch will be provided, and we will need dietary requirements and photo permissions ahead of the event.

Evaluation: The event will be evaluated by students attending.
