INKLings Schools Programme

I love it when we go in to groups, write scripts and then perform.

Maddie, Age 11

It’s great fun and really inspired me to be part of the plays.

Alberto, Age 12

Emma’s playwriting project is great socially and emotionally, with the kids learning valuable life skills through a free thinking, creative programme.

Lee Jones, Director of After School Programmes, The Youth Foundation, Colorado USA.

I really like how you can work things out with each other. It’s a fun way to express your feelings and gives me the opportunity to work on my acting skills.

Taylor, Age 11

INK is delighted to welcome the multi-talented, vastly experienced and simply wonderful Emma Parsons to launch a brand new exciting INKlings venture in Primary schools this September 2017.

In both After School Clubs and In- School programmes, Emma will be exploring acting technique, stagecraft, improvisation and playwriting through a series of fun filled drama games. Children will discover the magical process of developing characters, storylines, and the joy of bringing these characters to life.

We aim to celebrate the children’s creativity and imagination, encourage their creative writing skills, boost their confidence, and support the development of life skills such as teamwork, communication, focus, discipline, respect, leadership and problem solving.
