The Young People’s Theatre Programme tailors a curriculum for schools that follow the ICSE and CBSE boards. From the pre-primary to the 10th grade, students explore imagination, improvisation, story creation and expression via role play, puppetry, story-making and story-telling.
The Young People’s Theatre Programme offers a distinct perspective on English language Drama and gives candidates a practical-based qualification, as dictated by the IGCSE curriculum. Theatre Professionals’ extensive network and varied experience ensures that students eventually emerge with a working knowledge of theatre, what it means to be a theatre maker, as well as a critical audience.
The Young People’s Theatre Programme designs and delivers a Drama programme that seamlessly integrates with the IB-PYP Arts curriculum. Drama is also the ideal platform for the integration of subjects within this syllabus, and through which the Arts scope and sequence can be realised.
The Young People’s Theatre Programme goes beyond providing ISTA-qualified trainers to supervise and deliver instruction as prescribed by the IBDP Theatre Arts curriculum. Theatre Professionals’ extensive network gives students a distinct advantage: unprecedented access to actors, directors, and theatre-makers from across India and the world with which to explore the IBDP Theatre Arts curriculum.
For schools who haven’t as yet integrated Drama into their curriculum, but would like to begin their engagement with Drama, we offer our After-School Programmes. This programme negotiates ways by which Drama can be brought into children’s lives, outside school hours, engaging with learners of all ages, and dedicated to furthering their development.
The Young People’s Theatre Programme has worked with foundations, trusts, NGOs, and third party agencies to bring Drama to the lives of children in municipal schools, to create a safe space for self expression and development for the children who attend these schools.
Through this programme, we strive to create an environment where every child, irrespective of the medium of education, has the platform to tell their own stories, whilst providing a secure environment in which they can shore up the skills, confidence, and attitudes needed to negotiate their realities.
