Dubai And UAE Teachers' Resources
Dubai and UAE teacher resources are regularly updated to reflect the theatrical shows we bring to the UAE. We work closely with schools and teachers in Dubai and the UAE to provide additional resources and activities for our theatrical productions.
Aliens Love Underpants fans come one, come all because one of the decade’s most celebrated books is being brought to life on stage. Aliens Love Underpants, an award-winning production directed by Adam Brampton-Smith – the director who brought us the smash hit show Monstersaurus. The bestselling book has been adapted for children’s theatre and will be performed in the UAE in October 2018. The story is centered around a bunch of friendly and hilarious aliens, who have searched the universe for their very favourite item – underpants of course. With much of the hilarious rhyming couplets from the bestselling book, used as the basis for the interactive songs and story line, this really is a PANTS-TASTIC production.
Monsteraurus fans come one, come all because one of the decade’s most celebrated books is being brought to life on stage. Monstersaurus, an award-winning production directed by Adam Brampton-Smith – the director who brought us the smash hit show Aliens Love Underpants. The bestselling book has been adapted for children’s theatre and will be performed in the UAE from May 8th to 12th 2018. The hero of the story is Monty, a young inventor who decides, perhaps not too wisely, that he’s going to create a magical range of monsters. Unfortunately, monsters have very specific needs – and Monty has his work cut out in trying to care for his hapless creations. A musical and interactive stage extravaganza.
Julia Donaldson fans come one, come all because one of the author’s most celebrated books is being brought to life on stage. What The ladybird Heard, an award-winning production, performed by Kenny Wax Productions has been adapted for children’s theatre and will be performed in the UAE from March 9 to 16 2018.The hero of the story is of course a tiny ladybird, who lives on a farm with lots of other farm animals, including the fine prize cow, two cats, a sheep, a pig, a small dog, and the farmer’s horse. The ladybird is very tiny, and nobody considers her very important, until one day, they realise that she is actually the most important creature in the entire yard…
Getting children involved in the magical characters created by Roald Dahl can be done in a number of creative ways. Our activities include colouring pages, lesson plans, quizzes and trivia about the authors and the theatrical productions themselves. All our content is designed to help teachers make their classroom trip to the theatre not only more fun – but more educational. If a child engages with a story or theatrical show, they are more likely to seek out and enjoy similar literary experiences later on.

The children’s theatre we bring to the UAE always has a strong literary link because education through the arts is one of our favourite causes. We make sure teachers have a good range of materials to support their classroom activities prior to booking a trip to see one of our shows at the theatre. George’s Marvellous Medicine is one of our favourite Roald Dahl shows. We’ve brought it out to the UAE four times now – and every trip has been a massive success with school groups and families alike. We hope you enjoy our Teachers’ Resources pack.
Fantastic Mr Fox Teacher Packs
We strongly believe that preparation is everything before you embark on a trip to the theatre. That’s why we’ve included this Teachers’ Resources pack for Fantastic Mr Fox Live in this section. Making sure the children are familiar with the story and what live theatre can bring them enhances their enjoyment of the shows they see. That’s why it’s important to introduce the concept of what a theatrical experience is prior to the show. Theatre is storytelling at its most vibrant. It’s exciting, immediate and all our theatrical productions contain plenty of audience participation in the adventures unfolding on stage. Reading the book that has been adapted for the show, explaining the concept of musical theatre and live performance and how it can enhance their understanding of the story ensures the show really lives for them.
