Theatre Centre brings world-class theatre straight into the heart of schools. Its productions present big ideas and difficult questions that can help young audiences make sense of a complex and changing world. The company uses the power of stories, writing and performance to support students and teachers in their learning across a range of subjects to build confidence and aspirations.
During the pandemic Theatre Centre invited some of the UK’s most exciting writers to create a collection of stories for the nation to perform and record and then screened 19 films made up of submissions from people all over the UK under the banner ‘ImagiNation’.
The Imagination plays are the perfect provision to use in your school with a Drama or English class, or just as a great way to feel connected. Get your students to record whole stories or just a line or paragraph from one of the plays. It’s up to you. You don’t need any acting experience at all… you just need to enjoy telling a story!
ImagiNation is supported by a series of ‘How to…’ videos to give you some tips from top professionals on directing, acting, voice and filming – an amazing resource.
