Discover Pinocchio

We are offering a Discover Arts Award inspired by our studio show, Pinocchio.

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award to the arts, which raises children’s confidence, communication skills and awareness of the arts. Discover Pinocchio gives children the opportunity to take part in activities directly related to the show while learning more about the world of the arts.

You can choose from two options:
Crafty Pinocchio: Your class will learn about how our production team and designer make the show before creating their very own props, inspired by Pinocchio.

Playful Pinocchio: A fun introduction to drama and acting. Your class will learn about the role of the director and actors, creating their own creative response to the show, including personal logbooks that they get to keep.

Arts Award is an affordable opportunity for schools to bring structured arts provision into their curriculum. For schools on an Artsmark journey, Discover Pinocchio is a perfect opportunity to add value to their provision, working alongside Nottingham Playhouse as an established Artsmark supporter.

Discover Pinocchio is a 3 hour workshop for up to 30 pupils, and is available for schools either booking the tour or tickets for a performance at the Playhouse. Each pupil will get a logbook and a Discover Arts Award Certificate.
Price: £320 + VAT (+ performance cost)

Pinocchio Schools Tour: the workshop will take place on a different day to your performance.
Pinocchio at the Playhouse: the workshop will take place on the same day, before or after the performance (subject to availability). We can provide a space for the children to have a packed lunch in between the workshop and performance.
