Theatre in Education Company

The Theatre in Education Company draws on the expertise of academics, students and outreach professionals to focus on issues that are important to their audiences. Our aim is to be relevant and entertaining, compelling and reflective.

Over the years we have explored GCSE choices, Student Finance, Bio-ethics and the value of University. We have performed to thousands of children and young people in classrooms, halls and even at the Natural History Museum!

Our energetic Theatre in Education Company will be touring again this June with†two productions.

"The group were fantastic and professional. The performance workshop was engaging and very entertaining... the students havenít stopped talking about it."

Teacher, Kidderminster

Move on Up!

(Years 5 & 6)

Morgan, Timmy, Georgia & Josh are all about to move on up to big school. They all have different challenges to face, worries and hopes.

This highly interactive production puts the decision making in the hands of the audience who, with a little help from some voting technology, guide our characters through their first few weeks of school.

Full of energy, humour and engaging characters, Move on Up! is now in its third year of touring and a staple of AimHigher West Midlandsí Transition Outreach programme.

Touring throughout June

Nursing a Future

(Sixth Form & FE Colleges)

Magda, Harmony , Lee and Roosa and all want careers in healthcare. Journey with them as they become student nurses, experience the challenges of placements and reflect on the choices and decisions they have made.

This interactive theatre workshop highlights the importance of the 6 Cís, engages the audience in considering the realities of working in health care and the different options open to them.

As an additional bonus the TIE Company we are offering a Drama Skills workshop alongside Nursing a Future for students studying drama. It explores the techniques and processes of devising interactive, educational theatre and is delivered by the full company.

Touring in June and early July
