I am writing to thank you for the "Play in a Day" workshop your company ran for us yesterday. The practitioner, Sara, was outstanding - she was friendly, professional, had great behaviour management skills and a creative and effective way of working with young people. I can honestly say this is the first time in a long time that I have had a practitioner in school who genuinely is worth the money! The play that our students developed and performed was fantastic and enjoyed by all the year 9s and 10s who watched it and most importantly the performers were really proud of what they did.

Initially, the workshop was not planned for my class and I was concerned that the content would not be suitable. However, Clem arrived and he had the whole class totally involved in the first few minutes.
When the children started learning the words and actions for the play, it was good to see the confidence levels rising and the whole class were committed. They supported each other throughout the day. They enjoyed performing their play in front of several classes and received loud applause for their effort. It was a long but rewarding day.
A big 'thank you' to Clem who related well to all the children and he never lost his sense of humour throughout the day!

The experience was a really positive one and thoroughly enjoyed by the children and audience alike. We were really pleased to help our talented actors excel in this way. The children found it to be a lot of fun and had a great time with some of their own input being used. We were proud of their work. There was a very relaxed but organised feel to the day. Elle was very friendly, professional and enthusiastic. The children involved were all keen, motivated and enthusiastic about their experience. The children knew their parts well and had obviously worked hard to produce the finished product. The audience really enjoyed it!
