Mousetrap Theatre Projects to Offer Free Theatre Education Resources For Schools

London-based theatre education charity, Mousetrap Theatre Projects, has announced free educational resources for schools.

Collaborating with the producers and creative teams of outstanding current theatre productions, these education packs are designed to give students a glimpse 'behind the scenes' and a deeper understanding of the production. Each education pack is bespoke, focusing on themes and aspects of the show that teachers can use in the classroom.

Aimed at secondary school students coming to see the production, these free education packs (To Kill A Mockingbird, Life Of Pi, Back To The Future and Get Up, Stand Up! - The Bob Marley Musical) include classroom and drama studio activities based on the show and insights and guidance for teaching lessons linked to the curriculum, e.g. English, Drama or History.
