Past Productions was founded in July 2011 by Robert J. Southworth serving schools in the North-West of England. Past Productions offers historical theatre productions that are tailored to suit the KS1 and KS2 syllabus. We work hard obtaining feedback from teachers and students alike to make sure that our productions are always providing the best educational value possible. From our research we recognised a niche for history. Having expertise in T.I.E. in the UK and Europe we sought to offer schools something that we were passionate about, and also something that has not really been targeted for school theatre: history.
As well as offering high-quality professional productions to schools Past Productions recognises the need to offer that little bit more to our clients. We regularly compile and review all the materials that accompany our shows to make sure that they are of the highest standard. We also offer resources that can be used independently by teachers and students to aid teaching and learning on specific historical subjects. These include:
- Teaching Worksheets for Teachers
- Pre-Show and post-show workbooks
- Extra Stories to engage the children
- History of the Theatre at the specific time
All of these documents are available free to schools upon booking a show. Here at Past Productions we want to continue to build upon this and eventually offer a whole host of online information and interactivity that can engage children in their learning and help them to engage and take an interest in history. We invest heavily in our productions to keep them as high-quality as possible. We also make sure that our actors are fairly paid and have good working conditions.
