The Story Cellar can bring a day of Greatest Showman activities to your school, including physical theatre, singing, writing and shadow puppetry.  One class can make a Play-in-a-Day that showcases their talents and celebrates what makes all your pupils special!  All props and sound equipment provided.

Turn your school hall or classroom into a Spoken Word performance space. Be inspired by new writing that  introduces current events told through stories and characters that your children will know and love. Our writer will explore rhythm and rhyme with their young audience finding out what they feel passionate about!
