T.I.E (Theatre in Education) 2017 "Into The Woods"

At CPA we have an in-house Theatre in Education company which produce annual shows to take out into the community. We can support learning objectives across many subjects at Primary and Secondary levels in areas such as English, Drama, Music, History and Personal and Social Education. T.I.E is an engaging, stimulating, accessible and interactive way of introducing and raising awareness of a broad range of themes and issues through live performance.

Following the success of last years production of “Sussicalperformed to 100s of children in the Havering and Thurrock areas, our current production of “Into the Woods is ready to visit schools...

CPA Studios Director Samuel Hopkins and Musical Director Lyndsay Barnbrook together have devised an enchanting, informative and educational production raising the awareness of pertinent themes/issues through the characters journey: The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. This all taking place in a fantastical forest, in the shadows of the trees of the magical woods.

The “Into the Woods” performance will last approx. 1hour 15minutes, followed by a 45 minute workshop and is suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils. Times of the workshops can be adjusted to fit in with the school day. Workshops would work great with groups of 30 students and can work back to back with multiple groups.

If your school is interested in booking a performance of “Into the Woods” or would like more details of our work in schools please do not hesitate to contact the College department at CPA Studios on: 01708 766007 or email: collegeadmin@cpastudios.co.uk
