The aim of Scene & Heard's work is to boost confidence and to raise aspiration. They give children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays which are then publicly performed by professional actors.
The UK’s finest theatre professionals dedicate their time and talents to bring the words and imaginations of children to the stage. Their courses improve literacy and attitudes towards education. Their performances give the children immediate and public experiences of success, raising their aspirations and boosting their self-esteem.
