3 weeks, 14 schools, 52 workshops, 1,951 young people. All in a day’s work for Theatre31!
Responding to the gradual lifting of UK lockdowns, Playground Theatre was a vibrant programme of free workshops created by the Theatre31 Facilitation Team.
Over three weeks, drama-based taster workshops were delivered in playgrounds and outdoor settings at both primary and secondary schools, designed to introduce young people to the world of theatre and engage them in the exciting opportunities available to them through Icon’s Theatre31 programme.
While Covid-19 continued to be a challenge, it was no obstacle to the Theatre31 team, who adapted and successfully engaged over 1,900 young people across Medway and Sheppey in the Playground Theatre project.
