Theatre For Schools

Do you remember the first time you experienced the magic of a live theatre show? Ask any playwright, actor or theatre maker and it’s often their early exposure to the theatre that had a profound effect on them.

Each year NORPA puts together an exciting program of shows that inspire, educate and engage with young people of all ages. We connect with pre-schools, primary, high schools and home-schoolers across the region.

The Underlibrary of Unofficial Histories

In partnership with the Catholic Schools Office, Diocese of Lismore, NORPA’s creative team has developed an innovative new work, The Underlibrary of Unofficial Histories. Part immersive theatre, part game and part interactive research project, The UnderLibrary of UnOfficial Histories provides a theatrical lens and ‘world’ through which teachers and students will engage in the Stage Two History syllabus.

The Underlibrary entices the young audience into a rescue mission. The adventure begins with the arrival of postcards and artefacts sent from different periods of time in history in the lead up to the in-school performance. On the day of the performance the children are introduced to Zelda who shares the story of a librarian called Mr Finch and her missing brother Albus. Zelda then asks the children to help her solve a number of puzzles to gather clues that will help her find her brother and restart history. Watch the promo video.

We believe no one has more energy and imagination than kids. Many of the companies visiting NORPA also offer workshops for school aged children and our community. We also offer On Demand Workshops that can be tailored to performances.
