Where is Andrew McStag?

Where is Andrew McStag? is a film-noir style detective story where a student goes missing from home. The audience have to work out where he is.

We also have workshops

Speaking Clearly

Teachers will often tell students to speak up. but speaking up is actually not as simple as it seems to be. This interactive workshop gives students the key skills they need to speak clearly and be understood easily. 

How Does It Work?

The Basic Idea

The Bear Educational Theatre come to your school and our actors play live theatre shows in English for your students.  We can play up to four different shows for different levels in the same morning. If you send us a short email decribing your situation, how many students you have, what level they are, etc, then we will write back with some suggestions.

The shows are played by actors live on stage,and are very interactive. The actors talk directly to the audience and the audience have opportunities to answer questions, give their opinions and, in the case of younger students, even shout to the actors. The shows are very entertaining indeed, but are also designed around good teaching methodology. 

Once we have agreed on a program, we will confirm everything through email. Then we will come to your school on the morning of the program about 45 minutes before the first show to prepare the set.

For in-person shows, the school needs to provide the playing area (often a gym or a canteen). The minimum stage space that we would need to play in is 5m across and 4 m deep (but more than that is better). The school is also responsible for seating the audience (chairs, benches, mats,on the floor etc). On our side, we may ask to borrow some school desks and chairs, but this will be agreed before the show day. Generally we are very independent and have what we need with us.

Payment takes place after the show has been played. You can choose if you would like to pay by cash on the day of the shows (in which case you receive a stamped receipt), or if you would prefer to pay by invoice and bank transfer. Or we can do a combination of the two.

The shows can be enjoyed without any special preparation. However, you can find some basic preperation materials on the website. These contain a few exercises and activities that you can do with your students before or after the show. We will soon expand these materials to include online course formats and video lessons.

About us

Why Teach English with Theatre?

Theatre is a very effective teaching tool because it goes straight to the heart of what languages are about, people speaking and communicating directly with other people. It also goes to the heart of what teaching is about, creating a positive atmosphere among a group. There really is nothing like it!
