Early Years and Primary Schools

Our Primary School projects introduce children to the themes, characters and narratives of the stories being told at Reading Rep Theatre, as well as tickets to watch a production. Over six weeks, students will gain an insight into understanding and making theatre, as well as building skills in creative thinking, collaboration, and confidence. The projects will culminate in a sharing of performance work created by the students.
