"Students for their GCSE need to see live theatre. This (Mousetrap) experience is invaluable as so many students do not attend the theatre regularly and it really does enhance their understanding of drama and theatre and improve their own craft." Teacher, Oasis Academy Coulsdon
 

Insight Sessions

Our 90-minute Insight sessions take place before matinee performances in our theatreopeners programme. Designed as participatory masterclasses, Insights offer a more in-depth exploration into the processes of creating and staging a theatre production.

Please refer to our latest theatreopeners digital leaflet above for details of our current offer.

"The assistant director really put them through their paces with exercises that have been used with the actors to develop movement sequences and characterisation in the show. It was an invaluable experience from which the (students) will take lots of ideas for devising their final exam piece." Teacher, Gumley House School
