The workshops proved to be an effective way of enabling us as a County Council, working in partnership with Veolia, to deliver the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ message to the schools. Using this creative delivery method there was great potential to spread the message not only to the children involved in the workshop, but also to their peers watching. We are confident the messages learned will be passed on to the parents at home too.
The workshop leader demonstrated enthusiasm and commitment to the pupils at all times, she was attentive and flexible in her approach leading the children in a friendly and professional manner. All pupils were listened to and suggestions made were used effectively, allowing pupils to take ownership of the production and be in control of their own work.
Konflux Theatre in Education is a unique way to engage and motivate pupils, it was great to see them grow in confidence as they progressed through the day. Their involvement in the workshops and the final performance will be an experience I think they will remember for many years to come.

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!

The Workshop Leader worked really hard all day with the children. He was enthusiastic and engaging and used the children’s natural ability well to create the play. The way that he brought it all together so that the final performance was quite spectacular was outstanding. The children really excelled themselves in the final performance. The audience were totally engaged and loved the jokes and comedy acting moments. Some of the younger reception-aged children spontaneously gave the cast a standing ovation at the end which showed how amazing the final performance was. The children really enjoyed the whole experience which was linked to our pirate story theme for World Book Day. ‘Treasure Island’ was definitely the highlight of the week. Konflux kept in touch well before the workshops and even called on the day to check that everything was going well. It was a bit of a risk booking with a new company but I would thoroughly recommend the ‘Play in a Day’ as a wonderful experience and good value for money.
