Special Needs

Tell Me A Tale creates  innovative and unique sensory performances for young people with learning difficulties. The performance encourages the audience to be a part of the story using their senses.  It uses rhyme, repetition, song and Makaton to encourage the audience to join in and to be a part of the story itself. The stories focus on how the children respond both individually and as a group to the performance, and it adapts to their needs, skills and likes.  The performance lasts 45 minutes and there is a maximum capacity of 10   children for each show.

Workshops and School Residencies

Tell Me A Tale runs drama workshops in special needs schools that can be based on specific themes that a class is currently exploring.  We also tale part in residencies where students are able to work towards a performance that they can take part in.
