The@trical aims to bring all the drama of theatre to young people with learning difficulties

We are a pretty laid back bunch at The@trical. But if there is one thing that we are serious about, it’s play. Not play for play’s sake, but rather meaningful, relevant theatre productions for young people with learning difficulties. For us, bringing all the drama of the theatre to the SEN classroom is one of the most effective ways to reach out and engage students.

After all, there is plenty of research to suggest that dramatic arts are beneficial for those with special needs, and it‘s easy to see why. For starters, acting and dancing to music are simple, powerful ways to get young people moving. Add to that, The@trical encourages students to get involved with all aspects of the theatre, including prop & costume design, sound and front of house duties.
