TiSP FAQs



How do I find what I need?

Events are sorted by topic and classified by key stage. Most activities can be adapted for other key stages. If you can’t find what you need please call either theatre company as many of the activities can be adapted to meet your needs or we can produce bespoke work for your school.

How do I book?

Phone or email Face Front. We will discuss dates, times, numbers, facilities and any special requirements. Many of the workshops and productions can be tailored to your needs.

How much will it cost?

Each activity is offered at cost price less any funding we are able to raise. Savings are usually available for multiple bookings. See the ‘What will it cost?’ Please see the side bar on each page.

Are all performances and workshops available anytime?

Most performance workshops are available across the academic year. Staged performances tour for a fixed period. Where specific dates apply they are given on the relevant page. If in doubt, give us a call.

What support do you offer before and after your visit?

Many activities offer teachers resources to use in class, before or after our visit. We also offer INSET with some activities. Please see the relevant page for details.

What facilities will I need?

Requirements vary according to the activity. Often a clear classroom or drama space is enough. See the relevant page for requirements.

What is a performance workshop?

A performance symbol P indicates where a staged performance or show is included. Most other activities are performance workshops designed to make the most of the time available. These may use elements of a performance, use a script or actually involve participants in developing a performance of their own.

How do I know that the activities will be of high quality?

All activities in this brochure are accredited by the Theatre in Schools Partnership. Established in 2008, the partnership promotes the role of high quality theatre in schools and other education settings. All activities have been assessed as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ against the following criteria:

  • young people have been involved in the development of the activity
  • the activity is appropriately linked to the National Curriculum
  • the activity is suitable for the specified age group
  • pupil and teacher evaluation shows that 80% of young people have enjoyed the activity
  • following delivery 80% of audiences express increased awareness of the topic
