A Trip to the Theatre

November 13, 2008 at 11:39 am (Learning & Access) (, , , , , , , )

We are delighted to launch our new interactive virtual theatre visit, which is now available to use online as preparation for a trip to the theatre or as a fun activity for a school class. This colourful, informative feature shows children what to expect when visiting the theatre and gives them an insight into a venue that they might not be familiar with.

Why not explore the feature during an IT lesson, or as part of their arts provision. The feature includes a quiz on how to behave at the theatre, so is the perfect preparation for their visit to the theatre.
