Education & Outreach

Pretend With Us believe in using the Performing and Creative Arts to support the work of schools by creating lively and engaging programmes and workshops. We deliver curricular and social topics in an educational and fun way, bringing them to life through drama. 

Live theatre and the dramatic arts workshops can have a really positive impact on pupils. They can help to engage those pupils that might struggle in a classroom environment, while providing new and exciting challenges to high achieving learners. We believe our programmes contribute to pupil achievement and attainment by introducing creativity across the curriculum. Our work can shed new light on subjects perceived as difficult or boring and can greatly help strengthen life skills in pupils as they progress through education or search for work.

 We deliver workshops in

  • Creative Writing & Story Telling for Literacy
  • Art
  • Exploring Mask
  • Dance & Movement
  • Creative Drama
  • Public Speaking & Debate
  • Singing & Music
  • Physical Theatre & Stage Combat

Pretend With Us have developed a programme to enhance and support the SPHE curriculum at both primary and post-primary level. The use of drama and enactment allows students to explore topical and sensitive issues within the safety of the fiction. We provide single to multi day workshops. We can also offer a taster package to school staff to enhance their practice and use of creative drama. Our performing arts workshops provide curriculum enrichment.
