Applications open for Mousetrap’s summer term playwriting project


PLAYMAKERS, Mousetrap Theatre Projects

Applications are now open for Mousetrap’s summer term playwriting project.

Christie von Agatha (pictured) needs a box office hit to save her theatre. Will your pupils take on the playwriting challenge? Your Year 5 class will experience the master of mystery in action with a performance of Agatha Christie’s legendary The Mousetrap. They will then step into Agatha Christie’s shoes and create their own mystery masterpieces – which will be performed live on-stage at St Martin’s Theatre by professional actors. Playmakers also includes a training session for teachers to help you make drama an enduring presence in your classroom.

The deadline for applications is Friday 18 October. Find out more and apply on Mousetrap’s website.
