Theatre in Wales

The latest theatre, dance and performance news


Reveal Theatre Company has been awarded funding from NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME BOROUGH COUNCIL to produce a series of workshops for schools on the
environment. Following the success of STICKS AND STONES at the Stiwt Theatre in October 2004, Reveal returns to explore the environment.

Entitled ONE WORLD and in light of an increased awareness of the misuse of
the environment and citizenship, Reveal will tour schools in Staffordshire.

The area the size of a football pitch is destroyed in the rainforests every minute
Each year enough rubbish is produced in England and Wales to fill Lake
Windermere every nine months.

" We are delighted to be returning to The Stiwt Theatre after touring
there in 2004 with our bullying play Sticks and Stones. Reveal aims to
reduce the effects of the misuse of the environment on a school and home
level through these participatory workshops. By looking at the wider
effects of our abuse of the planet, the pupils will explore the
consequencves of our actions, and what we can do the combat this on a day
to day level."
ANDREW RAFFLE, Associate Director

What we will be offering

Workshops will take place with two professional practitioners, exploring
topics such as: damage to the environment by human life; the importance of
the environment; how we can redress this problem at home, school and
community levels; recycling; encouraging positive solutions and ideals and
following current national schemes (e.g. Eco-schools)

In addition, a full teacher's pack on CD ROM and resource material will
be supplied for each school with relevant information and helpline

Reveal will leave free recycling bins and collection calendars for
schools, if wanted.

Victorian Life at Newcastle Museum, where pupils were able to explore
Victorian culture through theatre.
