Now we also have the workshops and award winning stage show.
First there was The Railway Children – the book. Then there were the films.
After that, the Olivier Award-winning stage show for children, which is set in a purpose built 1,000 seat venue at King’s Cross, built around a real train track, with a vintage locomotive that steams into the theatre to delight all ages.
And now, for primary schools that bring 60 or more children to the show, the producers are offering drama workshops to be delivered class by class in their school either before or after the performance day.
Each workshop lasts for just under an hour and is adapted to suit the age of the class attending.
The children will explore themes and characters from the play, bringing sections of the script to life. By encouraging them to inhabit the characters and explore the story, we will enhance the children’s experience of the show and enable them to write engagingly about the production and their experience.
Additionally our Education Guide includes activities for teachers and students and behind-the-scenes interviews with the writer and the director.
Both the live production and E. Nesbit’s original text contain numerous themes to explore in the classroom, including family relationships, the countryside, morality and social justice. To download our education pack, please click here.
Workshops for smaller groups are available in the theatre foyer before the performance.
