Classic children’s literature has stood the test of time; these are books in which we find characters, experiences and perspectives that are still relevant today. Studies have shown that a deep engagement with storytelling and great literature links directly to the emotional development of children in primary school. As well as encouraging reading for pleasure, live theatre has the power to bring emotions to life; portraying a character’s motivations and the consequence of their actions, helping children understand their own feelings and those of others.
M&M Theatrical Productions’ Classic Literature Adaptations are an ideal enrichment experience to further support and complement the PSHE curriculum. All of these productions have one thing in common; they all feature a child character making a journey whilst learning valuable and lifelong lessons. The company is passionate about promoting the performing arts to a generation who may not already have the experience of visiting a theatre, in the hope that this might inspire a lifelong interest. Wonderfully constructed sets and special effects, adaptable to any venue, allow for this experience to be enjoyed by the whole school, in the safety of their own surroundings. M&M Theatrical Productions balances humour with serious messages, evoking emotions in a sensitive and relevant manner, and encouraging appropriate and valuable audience reaction to a wide range of moral and ethical issues. What better way to highlight these issues than through the Magic of Theatre?
