When Freya’s village is threatened with famine she decides to set off on a quest to find Sigurd’s Treasure. On her journey she meets a host of colourful characters that both help and hinder her in her quest. Each character allows us to show a different aspect of Viking life as well as being entertaining for the children. This Viking theatre show is brought to you by Hobgoblin Theatre Company.
Through Freya’s adventure we learn about Viking Life, both at home and on board a Viking Longboat. We also visit Angleland and learn a little about the Anglo-Saxons who live there.
This interactive play blends action and discussion to fully immerse the audience in the story. As well as watching the play the children also get the chance to discuss the action they are watching in ‘interactions’ with the actors throughout the show.
Here are some examples of what teachers have said about the show…
“The play was excellent. The children were enthralled by the story. The acting was of a high quality and the children were fully engaged in the discussions. A wide variety of facts about Viking life was introduced. The actors were very enthusiastic and the session was pitched at the right level. A thoroughly enjoyable morning.” Louise McGrath, Donhead Prep School
“A brilliant, engaging and educational morning. All the children were engaged (even those with behavioural issues). Children quickly warmed to the performers and responded well to them. All learnt lots in both sessions. You arrived early, set up quickly and were fab to have in school. The play was good and we particularly liked splitting in to groups to have great discussions. The children enjoyed the drama workshop and produced some amazing still frames. Great value for money and would love to have you back again soon. A big thank you from us all.” Katie Threlfall, Gonerby Hill Foot Primary School
“Great questioning and knowledge. Covered the curriculum through a dramatic story. Super acting that was engaging from the start. Great use of props. Every child enjoyed the morning.” Lisa Donnison, St Jude’s C of E Primary School
