Welcome to Dramatic

Since 2009 Dramatic Theatre has been delivering engaging theatre in health education programmes. Our work uses interactive theatre projects to support young people to make healthier life choices and begin to develop the skills to make healthy and informed decisions.

Working across a wide variety of school settings with children and young people of all needs, abilities and backgrounds we have built a reputation for creating highly effective theatre in education performances and workshops that inform and educate on key health related issues young people may face. Bringing the PSHE curriculum to Dramatic life.

At the centre of each of our projects is a carefully researched and structured piece of professionally delivered theatre. This is designed to emotionally engage its audience, presenting recognisable characters, identifiable situations and risks or challenges to be overcome. The facilitated interactive activities that surround the performances allow participants the opportunity to question and reflect upon the choices the characters make in the story. Crucially the projects invite children and young people to consider how if they found themselves in similar situations they might go about managing the risks or challenges to be overcome in different ways.
