What we do
Since 2009 Dramatic Theatre have been designing and delivering engaging, educational theatre projects. Our approach offers young people the opportunity to learn about themselves and their world in a creative way.
Our work uses professional performance and Interactive workshops to support young people to explore key issues, so that they can begin to make empowered and informed choices in the future. Whether it's exploring a challenge, tackling a key issue, or expressing feelings, our projects are always designed to connect with the needs of our participants and partners.
Our work has taken us- across the Yorkshire and Humber region and connected us with children and young people of all needs, abilities and backgrounds. In both schools and wider community settings. Together we use theatre to create new ways of exploring ideas, that support young people to discover, develop and grow.
Dramatic Theatre constituted as a community interest company in 2020.Read more
We have found using educational theatre a powerful and engaging method for communicating our healthy lifestyle messages to young people. Our collaborations with dramatic theatre have produced extremely exciting, engaging and effective projects that support our objectives.
