that entertain, inform and inspire!
This year the award-winning Chain Reaction Theatre Company are delighted to be celebrating 19 years of delivering inspirational theatre and interactive issue-based workshops to schools, theatres, community venues, and corporate clients.
Since our conception in 1994, we have been inspiring people of all ages with our unique brand of informative, entertaining and thought-provoking theatre, engaging workshops and excellent video productions that directly address the most important issues facing today’s society. Our meticulous process ensures that we offer clear and accurate information, brought to life through music and comedy. Since we began, more than a quarter of a million people have felt the positive benefits of our work!
Our educational productions and workshops help prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they face while growing up. Both young people and adults enjoy the informative and entertaining Chain Reaction experience!
We benefit the lives of young people and adults by educating them on key current health and social issues in a memorable way, and by inspiring them to move forward from the Chain Reaction experience to make positive informed decisions about their lifestyles, behaviours, attitudes and actions. In this way we help people create a better future, not only for themselves but also for their friends, collegues, peers and famililes, and the wider community.
We have a hugely successful track record of delivering professional theatre to schools and educational establishments; both teachers and pupils repeatedly ask us to come back and do more! We’ve created twelve original, educational shows designed for specific age groups between 5 and 16 years. Each one mixes comedy, song, dance and drama with vital messages and important facts. Through these shows and accompanying resources, we explore sensitive and controversial topics that seriously affect young people’s personal, social, emotional and economic health. FIND OUT MORE
We have an outstanding reputation for delivering targeted, intensive, issue-based workshops with young people aged 5 to 19. We work hard to make a real difference to the lives of young people, many of whom are disengaging from society, at risk of offending or have severe emotional and behavioural problems. Our tailor-made workshops are specially devised to meet the specific aims of a variety of different organisations and groups. They’re flexible, stimulating and boost confidence, whilst tackling a whole host of health and social issues, to help make a real difference to young people’s lives. FIND OUT MORE
