The Frantic Workshop


INTRODUCING: The Frantic Workshop

Our new workshops for Years 8 and 9

We're delighted to be launching new workshops for Year 8 and 9 students! This is a great opportunity to get your younger students excited about drama and about creating their own work. These workshops will introduce participants to the basics of our building block techniques, using physicality to open up their ideas of what theatre can be. The focus is on fun, team building and learning new skills. 

These workshops will inspire younger students to take part in drama and start them thinking about their next creative steps!

*Workshops are a maximum of 2 hours*


Awaken your students' devising skills!

Bring one of our specialist Frantic Assembly practitioners to your school and let your students experience an insight into Frantic Assembly. 

This workshop: 

  • Provides your students with a new skills to start thinking about devising their own work

  • Promotes the physical confidence your students need to be brave and bold 

  • Uses production specific exercises from shows like Lovesong, Stockholm, Beautiful Burnout and Othello

  • Informs students on the various devising processes used by Frantic Assembly like our building blocks techniques and Chair Duets


All of our workshops are active explorations of the Frantic method of devising, which is about empowering people to be better at making theatre from a physical starting point. For this reason, our workshops do not explore suggested themes or texts, nor do they devise performances for examinations.

Frantic Assembly is a recommended theatre company on AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and IB syllabuses and is studied widely at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate studies. 

If you have any further queries about this workshop, contact our Learning & Participation Co-ordinator Maya Pindar by emailing or call the office on 020 7841 3115.

The feedback from our pupils was overwhelmingly positive. They had a great day, enjoyed the experience and are ready to apply Frantic Assembly’s approach to their own devising process at both GCSE and A level. The workshop was invaluable and well worth the money. I whole-heartedly recommend other schools to use Frantic Assembly’s workshops!
