What is Five ASide Theatre ?

Five ASide Theatre is an innovative combination of theatre and sports games that encourage fun, friendship, healthy living and confidence. We are inviting children aged 7-11 to join us during the half term/school holidays for a week of theatrical fun, games, trophies and medals.  During the Tournament players will be split into Five ASide Theatre Teams to compete in Theatre and Sports Games. All abilities are welcome!

Led by experienced Drama teachers, Directors, Coaches, Drama facilitators the young players will have the chance to be part of a professional theatre company for a week, while building confidence, boosting social skills and sparking their imagination.

We will provide fun through a variety of exciting games and drama activities covering acting, ball sports, characterisation, dancing, improvisation, storytelling and more!

Young players will gain hands-on experience and work as a team to compete in games culminating in an awards ceremony.

Coaches have training in Safeguarding, First Aid, Running Safe Activities and Theatre experience. Five ASide Theatre is committed to all aspects of safeguarding. All adults at the School will have an enhanced DBS check, with a Designated Safeguarding Lead and First Aider on site each day.
