CONTINUED THEATRE TRIPS (CTTs) 2012-2019
Our specially programmed 10.30am schools' matinees are a continuation of the legacy left by three successful years of work with the Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts START programme between 2008-2011.
START at Norwich Playhouse (seating 300) provided 8,400 places for students and their teachers to see 16 drama, dance and musical productions at heavily subsidised prices.
Take a look at the Picture Gallery on the right to see some highlights of our CTT Project so far...
CTT aims to bring young people into the auditorium to learn about theatre as consumers and to find out how theatre can play a continuing role in their lives.
CTT aspires to:
1) Help build young people’s confidence by offering two separate visits to a theatre venue supported by introductory in-school assemblies, thus giving young people the chance to experience professionals in action, close up
2) Help young people feel comfortable in a cultural environment
3) Give young people the opportunity to develop appreciation/enjoyment of an art form (e.g. willingness to get involved in cultural activity beyond lesson time, increased independent engagement with the arts) and provide them with a wider set of recreational options and interests
4) Give young people and teachers the opportunity to use the arts as a starting point for inspirational creative and cross-curricular activities
5) Enhance the professional development of teachers
