Pupils from Winterfold School, Chaddesley Corbett were treated to a unique performance by The White Socks Theatre Company which explored children’s mental health in a very interactive way.
The actors cleverly entertained the pupils, whilst teaching them about mental health issues that might affect them, together with coping strategies. The children responded enthusiastically; they didn’t appreciate that they were learning, just having fun.
With over fifteen years’ experience working within the theatre industry, the aim of White Socks Theatre is to inspire young people and create an environment in which they can play and use theatre to help educate.
Head of Drama Mrs Stark said “The sound of laughter and excitement from the School Hall was tremendous and showed how engaged in the piece the children were, from start to finish. The standard of acting was excellent. We hope that we will see more from White Socks when they tour future projects”.
