Option one: Act On Anti-Bullying
This drama workshops raise awareness of bullying and its effects using a combination of performance and forum theatre techniques.

Pupils practically role play some strategies to deal with bullying in a safe environment. The workshop also signposts pupils to various ways to stay safe and get help. We can focus on Emotional & Physical Bullying or Cyber Bullying dependent on what you think is most relevant to your school.

Rehearsing all day with our professional director your class create a 20 minute play with a PSHE focus, sharing the learning with other classes and/or parents in a performance at the end of the school day and/or a later assembly. Pupils decide what the focus of the play is and each pupil has a speaking part as a character or narrator. All participants are actively involved using inventive theatre techniques such as choral speech, stylised movement and mime.
