Let’s make Learning Fun!

We believe in learning through fun. Using drama workshops to get on our feet to enhance the curriculum whether it’s learning the structure of a fairy tale for English Literature or working through our daily routine to understand the importance of attendance in school.

Our productions are self-sufficient.
We tour everything needed to transform your space into a theatre.

We tour with:

Stunning scenery

We created our own unique, hand painted backdrops and free standing flats that are flexible to any given space. This means we can transform your school gym into a magical fantasy land that children will love to learn in!

Beautiful costumes

We have a huge range of beautiful costumes and we will bring along changes for all characters and up to 13 costumes for the pantomime dame among us! Let their imaginations run wild and see them transform into pirates, pantomime cows and many more!

Our sets also include:

  • State of the art LED lighting rig
  • Theatre quality sound including top quality headset microphones
  • All of our equipment is PAT tested
  • All of our staff hold up to date DBS checks
  • We hold Public Liability insurance up to £5,000,000

"We have had the pleasure of working with Talegate Theatre for almost ten years now, it’s a relationship we really value. We have found James to be amazingly creative; small budgets and tight deadlines don’t faze him, in fact he thrives on the challenge! James has worked with us on Christmas events, summer festivals, dramas and children’s workshops. We have commissioned Talegate Theatre to work with us on a project running until 2020 and this itself should be a ringing endorsement of how much we appreciate Talegate’s contribution to our events programme. Oh, and by the way, James is a thoroughly nice guy!"

Join us on the Sam
and Sammie Roadshow!

We explore attendance and highlight the way attendance and punctuality improvements can be made in each school. We do this through a fun, vibrant and age specific show followed by a fully supportive engaging workshop.

Packages including the show and workshop are available for whole school assemblies, events and teacher training courses. School group/ Cluster discounts available.

"Having worked in partnership with Talegate Theatre for the past few years I've always admired their commitment professionality and enthusiasm which generates excitement amongst young people helping build confidence in embracing performance."
