The productions were very professional. Our pupils have gained in confidence and gave evidence of their success in working as part of a team.In their performances the children not only acted well but projected characters in a sympathetic way. They showed maturity, whilst portraying different characters around thought provoking issues. The whole cast brought humour, empathy and charisma to the stage and the audience were totally engaged.
What a fantastic show - perfect for year 5. The script was easy to follow and everything was provided to be able to produce and direct it. The children loved the songs and it provided many historical facts too. Definitely recommend.
A wonderful concept for a show. Keeps even the most fidgety of pupils engrossed! Great pace, lovely story telling. A great show with wonderful songs. We loved it!
Fantastic show. The children really enjoyed the play and learnt lots along the way. Full of facts with catchy songs. A great experience all round.
Great script, fast moving action, easy to do and keeps the kids engaged. Nice range of character work too.
We've definitely been to Wonderland and we all had a fabulous time there. Would recommend to any school even if you can't get the songs out of your head! The cast really enjoyed the experience and thanks for all the extra games I didn't even realise I was getting!
Stephanie the founder of Scripts To Stage is a writer, director and producer who worked in partnership with The Lowry on several plays including her own writing and National Theatre Connections. Key to Stephanie’s approach is her commitment to working with young people on all aspects of theatre. She provides a creative, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional presence and is dedicated to working with young people and communities to make theatre and to bring theatre to life.
The scripts entertained & engaged everyone - participants and audience members. The scripts are fantastic, the way they are written really helps bring the story to life. As a training tool they really push the characters out.
The many plays provided a wide range of opportunities to experience theatre that our children would not normally have. They were highly enjoyable made more so as the children were able to participate in all aspects of presenting a professional play.
My first experience of working with Stephanie was on the production of Docks Law. My abiding memory of the work is one of professionalism and excitement in equal measure for the cast of children and young people who were experiencing working on a stage performance for the first time. I was able to support, mentor and observe how each individual young actor was nurtured, developed and challenged, to give a performance they could hardly have realised they were capable of. The outcome of the training and rehearsals was a professional and breath-taking performance. Docks Law was a triumph and this is due entirely to Stephanie’s motivation, determination and her ‘God given ability’ to inspire and draw from each actor the highest standard of performance. I am proud to say I was involved in the production of this musical play which truly highlights one of the most talented Directors / Producers to come out of the North West of England.
My daughter Lauren was shy and lacked confidence. After the training process and playing a part in the show we saw a different side to my daughter. She was no longer a shy little girl but a great performer with lots of confidence. Lauren then went on to get a lead part in the next musical. The play was amazing and yet again Lauren has shown her ability to act. This led to Lauren being taken on by an acting agency.
