Plays for young audiences / Schooltours

Plays for young audiences

Every year students at the age of 12- 16 enjoy our special youth production. Fame Game in 2010 was seen by 4400 students, for Rob and the Hoodies, The Switch and Around The World In 80 Days we counted more than 5000 visitors each. The Schooltours Plays always deal with specific topics and stories close to the experiences and literary interests of our juvenile audience. The language is adapted to their level and we support the teachers with scripts, worksheets and follow-up workshops.


The play is suited to an audience of 12-16 years old. Performances will be held during the school day and teachers will receive the script in advance.
