Theatre in Education

Theatre in Education

Formed in 1979, Gazebo Theatre in Education is an exciting company that enables children and young people to investigate, participate and explore a range of subjects and issues through theatre. With 35 years of history, Gazebo has a track record of teaching young people through participatory based learning. We are into our fourth decade of delivering live performances and workshops to hundreds of schools engaging thousands of children across the UK.

Our Focus

How Theatre in Education works

Unlike classroom based learning, our unique programmes work by bringing young people face to face with actors. Our interactive workshops are based around difficult subjects such as bullying, drug misuse, knife crime, discrimination and exploitation. Our work is admired by teachers because it pulls students into the story by bringing to life characters, great literature and history.

Our Theatre in Education Company use a variety of techniques to bring life to an issue. This includes games, role play and improvisation.

Gazebo’s powerful workshops use the power of story and imagination to create a dynamic and enriching experience for all involved, including teachers! Our workshops encourage students to solve problems and reach conclusions. This is effective because it ensures individuals overcome barriers by being better informed and prepared when faced with similar real life situations.

Behind the Scenes

To meet the high standards of your school all costumes, props, sets and script are specially selected by ourselves. Gazebo produce all material based on in depth research. Before we come out to your school our performers go through an intense rehearsal schedule, as well as researching into real life characters. This enables Gazebo to efficiently teach within the context of the story.

The Future

At Gazebo we are really passionate about bringing theatre to schools. We are working hard to gain funding/sponsorship of our programmes to reduce costs for schools. Theatre provides inspiration and has the potential to be a life-changing experience. It touches imagination, arouses curiosity and fires an artistic impulse. Theatre can also be an exceptional learning resource, linking as it does to so many areas of knowledge. With so many ideas on board, shows and workshops are currently being planned. Gazebo are looking forward to the next few years but in the meantime you can download our programme for 2014/2015 or you can contact us.
