Our work for Primary Schools

Theatre Alibi tours its work for children to primary, special and independent schools every autumn, reaching around 11,000 children each year. We also tour larger scale productions for children to theatres across the country, which are attended by schools and families. To accompany shows we produce Teacher’s Notes, which suggest ideas for follow-up work. Click here for more information about how we can support pupils with special needs.
