Arc news: April 2013


Last chance to book FREE antisocial behaviour performances in school!

As the next stage of our eight-week tour of London schools continues after the holidays, we have a very limited number of FREE Müllered performance programmes to offer until 8 May... contact us today on 020 8594 1095 to find out if your school is eligible for a free performance for Years 7 to 10!

Here's feedback just in from schools who have already participated in this special opportunity, funded by BTP, Network Rail and TFL...

"Well presented, acted and important messages were clear to the pupils throughout the performance. Impressed how it was done in a way that made the characters and the messages more accessible to the pupils."
St Bonaventure's Catholic School, Newham

"Having spoken to the staff who watched your performance and the students I can say that everyone really enjoyed the production, it was really fantastic. Moreover, you were all lovely people to liaise with and incredibly professional."
Alperton School, Brent

"All feedback was positive. The girls were buzzing once the performance was finished and many Year 8 form tutors discussed the performance this morning."
Westwood Girls College for Languages and Arts, Croydon

About Müllered

Müllered is Arc's new theatre piece commissioned by British Transport Police, examining the causes, deeds and consequences of victimisation and unruly behaviour on the railways.

With a compelling and often humorous performance, a specially structured, facilitated conversation workshop, and Teachers' Resource notes compiled by writer Clifford Oliver, Müllered can effectively be used in schemes of work across all National Curriculum subjects to provide opportunities to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Now booking FREE OF CHARGE for selected secondary schools, Müllered is specially designed for Years 7 to 10. To find out more about the programme, visit our dedicated Müllered page, or contact Nita Bocking or Theresa Snooks TODAY to see if your school is eligible for a free performance on our eight-week tour this spring!

"All students got involved and felt comfortable to share their experiences, Natalie facilitated the discussion very well."
Archbishop Tenison's Church of England High School, Croydon

"Very professional and well organised on the day. Actors were well atuned to our students, which has not always been the case with visiting TiE companies."

"Most [students] showed clear understanding when we spoke to them, some designing posters as a result of the performance."
Copland School, Brent

"Thanks for coming to perform to the students. I thought the issues were excellently addressed and I really enjoyed it. The first group are known to be more ‘lively', but they did seem to engage with the performance and I heard a lot of them talking about it afterwards. Please let me know if you are doing anything else that may be suitable for our students."
Kingsford School, Newham

"Many thanks again Natalie for coming. Our staff and learners really enjoyed the production. And the feedback we have received form the learners is excellent. Please come again!"
John Ruskin College, South Croydon

"Students asked some very interesting questions directly related to the performance. Feedback was very good."

"Students were captured by the performance and responded really well."

"Pupils engaged as an audience. Found the whole performance entertaining, thoughtful and an eye opener of sorts as to how they should behave on the different TFL services."
St Bonaventure's Catholic School, Newham

"The Arc members were fantastic. From the booking with Nita who was very helping to Natalie and her colleagues turning up promptly and being very helpful in setting up the chairs etc. They were a lovely group of people. The performance and the student engagement were so good that we have booked another performance for a Year 8 group... the whole process from start to finish was impressive."
Alperton School, Brent

"[Students were] purposefully engaged."

"Year 8 pupils absolutely engaged."
Oasis Academy Shirley Park, Croydon
