Commissioning theatre in education tours during a pandemic

So, are theatre in education tours being commissioned during the Coronavirus pandemic? Loudmouth ones are, YES.

Not only are all our commissioned tours for this academic year going ahead, we have new tours being commissioned. We have more commissioned work this year than last, which is pretty incredible given the circumstances. From November 2020 we are back in schools and colleges running all our programmes virtually and our funders are supporting us 100%. We are thrilled and so are the pupils and staff.

We have used the lockdown time to adapt our programmes so we can carry on our work, even if we are not physically able to go into schools and colleges. We now have a range of virtual formats for schools and commissioners to choose from. Our plays have been rewritten to work as pre-recorded films and our actor-facilitators run live streamed workshops via the internet using Microsoft Teams.

By being virtual we are actually able to reach more children and young people and as a result are being commissioned across the country.

What people say

Take a look at how we’ve helped others

Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!


Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
