At en masse we believe strongly in the participatory nature of theatre and are determined to make our productions as accessible as possible.
Our productions are accompanied by teacher resource packs, to help your class get the most of their trip to the theatre.
We also offer drama workshops alongside our productions which offer practical explorations of the themes, characters and stories. All of our workshop leaders have full CRB disclosure.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss our education activities.
NB: There are Education Packs available for our productions of We All Fall Down, The Ignatius Trail, The Shelter and The Iceberg. Please contact us if you would like a copy.
In Autumn 2009, en masse created Project Storm, an innovative theatre and art project working with Year 6 pupils from Sir John Barrow School in Ulverston.
Whilst rehearsing for our production of Spaceship ’87 at the nearby Lanternhouse International, Year 6 pupils visited read throughs and rehearsals of the production offering us their feedback on the way the production was taking shape. We then worked with them to create a space themed installation for the foyer of the Royal Exchange Theatre, and they came to see our productions of Spacehip ’87 at the Royal Exchange and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at the Dukes Theatre, Lancaster.
It was a pleasure to work with these imaginative and inspiring young people, and we even got to see them perform in their Christmas concert.
Alongside the work with the school, en masse ran weekend family workshops for the local Ulverston community to create space themed soundscapes for the production.
With thanks to everyone at Lanternhouse and all the staff at Sir John Barrow School for helping to make this project happen.
