The Power of Reading

Following the same format as the Power of Drama, 1 day per week for 6- week period, this programme inclusively involves the whole class. Working in tandem with your current reading material, the Wizard Theatre take the classes current reading book and bring it to life! Exploring characters and breaking down the plot, this is the perfect catalyst for those children reluctant to engage with reading and using their imagination.

Producing high-quality theatre-in-education that engages staff and students is of paramount importance – this mission drives us forward. The cherry on the cake is that when we do such a great job, we receive multiple reviews testifying to that statement.

Every project delivers a different experience to those involved so it rewarding to hear first-hand what our audience took away with them. For some, our projects can be reflective and thought-provoking, for others they can install confidence and ignite passion. Please take a moment to read some reviews from past and present Wizard Theatre clients.   

I thoroughly recommend this 6 week course. The targeted children began fairly quietly and the aim was to develop their self- confidence through speaking and listening skills and activities. This was certainly achieved and the outcomes were excellent. I was amazed by their end of course presentations and their progress has been carried into the classroom and other areas of school life. We have seen a real improvement in their confidence and achievements. All of our work with 'Wizard Theatre' is of a high quality and I am always very impressed by the tutors/actors that they provide.

I am a great fan of the project and it's proven positive impact on emotional & social development, attainment and learning behaviours of the children who have taken part.
