Through puppetry, music, swords, a severed head and a whole host of other props our Greek show will bring alive several Greek Myths. Our hero Joel falls asleep and wakes up in Ancient Greece. He has to travel with his father Daedalus to Crete where they must serve King Minos. After escaping the island Joel then has to battle King Minos’ Minotaur as Theseus the Prince of Athens. Along his journey he meets the kind(but very annoying) Princess Ariadne who promises to help him kill the Minotaur in return for safe passage off the island. Joel then becomes Zeus himself and has to learn all about what it’s like to be a God. When Prometheus tricks Zeus, he is punished and so is his brother. Joel’s final adventure takes him to meet Pandora, who only wants one thing in this world; the box.
Joel’s problem is that he didn’t listen properly in class so he has to figure out the endings of the stories. For this he needs your help! The children get to participate in many parts of the story; from recreating storms and boats to creating the maze that Theseus must traverse to get to the Minotaur. This show is suitable for both children who have studied the topics of Ancient Greece, or as an introduction to get their imaginations flowing for the topic ahead.
Following the show there will be workshop with our two facilitators. This can be split into two or several sessions depending on how many children are taking part in the day. We can offer the following activities:
*If we are working with 60 children or less, the workbooks will not be required during our visit. You are free to use these at any point in your topic. We try to design as many of our materials as possible to be used as standalone resources.
Up to 90 children (3 classes) can take part in a full days workshop. For large groups we will need to split the day up slightly.
A big hall is ideal for large groups. However quite often we can fit into one or more classrooms dependent on the group size.
