EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
At Ditto, we love creating exciting and innovative theatre for all the family, but are also extremely passionate about educating and inspiring the next generation of theatre makers. We firmly believe that theatre can be used as a social, historical, political and educative tool in society and that the arts plays a crucial role in the development of young people.
Ditto offer a range of workshops that can be adapted for varying ages and abilities. As a company, we specialise in workshops focusing on:
Ditto have led many successful and popular workshops across the UK for a variety of organisations. These include:

"Not only do Ditto Theatre Company create wonderful pieces of theatre they also provide outstanding workshops to complement their work.
Our students were mesmerized, fully engaged and had a terrific time with the cast and workshop leaders as they explored object puppetry.
We would work with Ditto Theatre Company again in a heartbeat!"

Ditto in the Community
At Ditto, we understand that getting to the theatre can be quite difficult for some areas and demographics of the country and so, offer our performances and workshops to a variety of community social settings:
We have worked with the following organisations to bring theatre to the community:
The Library Presents
Cambridgeshire County Council
The National Trust
Plays in the Playground
As long as there’s some space and a keen audience, we’re there!
Schools and Colleges
We also work extensively with schools and colleges to offer educational packages to help aid learning and development amongst students. Typically, we offer a performance and workshop package that also includes access to our Educational Show Pack – a teaching aid to help guide learning in relation to Ditto’s work. These packages can be accessed via their respective show's page on this website or emailed to you. The packs can also be tailored specifically to meet your needs in order for you and your students to gain the most out of our visit.
