Educational Workshops

Our workshops are designed to help and encourage everyone to be creative and learn a new skill in a fun & exciting environment. They enable children to be independent, creative and expressive. The aim of the workshops, is not simply for students to gain an understanding of the theme or plot but also to explore modern issues in relation to the themes.


These workshops are designed for 5 - 11 year-olds and typically last for 90 minutes, although they can be adjusted to fit your requirements. The workshops are led by two actors and together with props, parts of costumes, masks, musical instruments and sound system, provide tools for the students to use to create the environment of the given piece. Each workshop comes with follow-up study notes and fact sheets.

Over the past 25 years Ian Britten-Hull, our producer/director has devised and led workshops for young people on a variety of topics and for various companies. Some of the companies Ian has produced workshops for, include Shakespeare 4 Kids, Rainbow Theatre, Seagull Theatre and Spin Off Theatre. In addition to this Ian has toured with workshops as a freelancer across the UK to; schools, theatres and community venues. Drawing on his experience in workshop production as an education resource A.M.A. Theatre Co. are pleased to have Ian at the helm for a variety of educational workshops. We hope you will find the programme invaluable whether you are a school, drama group or youth club and we look forward to working with you.

Swords Workshop 1
Swords Workshop 2
Swordfight Scene

This workshop programme run by AMA Theatre Co. and is designed for students to study the history of pirates of 18th century. The workshops look at why some people became pirates and what their life was really like. The workshops enable students to understand the truth about piracy rather than the romantic versions often presented in films and books. The workshops encourage students to ask questions and discuss the topics covered.

The students also get involved by acting in short scenes led by the actors. They are encouraged imagine themselves in the situations that pirates lived through and how they might react to the similar situations themselves.  To book a session of this workshop, please contact A.M.A. Theatre Co. via email: or give us a call on 01462481969.
