Catherine Wheels Theatre COmpany

Projects from 2007 - 2008

As one of Scotland's leading producers of work for children and young people, Catherine Wheels Theatre Company is committed to creating work in a range of contexts, from the big theatres, to forest clearings, to the school classroom.

For P1 - 3 pupils

A Town Called Elsewhere is a fantastic example of the success of the work Catherine Wheels produces for schools, with a programme that included a pre-show workshop for pupils, a live performance in the school hall and a professional development session for teachers. Exploring ideas around citizenship, belonging and culture, A Town Called Elsewhere followed a boy called Joe as he went on an adventure to a new town, where everything was not quite as he expected.

As Education Facilitator for Catherine Wheels, I led pre-show workshops with Primary 1 - 3 pupils and also delivered CPD training for teachers.

The project originally toured in February and March 2007. Following great success, Catherine Wheels was awarded generous support from the Wood Family Trust to tour to a further eleven areas in Autumn 2008. This saw me working with pupils and teachers in East Lothian, Moray, Fife, the Highlands, Aberdeen, West Lothian, East Renfrewshire, Edinburgh, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire and Shetland.
