Theatre Based Learning & Training

Acting is a powerful personal and team development tool for improving skills and behaviours. Keystone offers theatre-based, high impact learning suited to large organisations. This learning style is appealing to our senses which will, in turn, leave a long-term effect on your team. Using the sense of seeing, hearing and feeling, rather than just classroom-based learning, will stimulate the memory as the body is learning alongside the mind.

"Role play was excellent and brought the subject to life in a real way. Best module so far and has had the biggest impact for my daily role at work."

- Lawrence Baxter, Balfour Beatty Rail Site Manager Of The Future Programme


Drama Based learning

Have you ever watched a professional actor on TV or on stage, and wished you could talk with them, find out what it is they really think - even help them by offering some advice? Using theatrical techniques to reflect the real-life workplace challenges of your people, Keystone invites participants to observe, engage with, coach and direct characters who are facing the same corporate dilemmas and business challenges as the participants themselves.

Our use of theatre and drama-based techniques to accelerate learning and increase engagement across the range of programmes we offer keeps Keystone at the forefront of theatre-based training. We work with specialist trainers and actor facilitators who are expert at utilising drama and DVD material to create memorable, high impact learning programmes and events for organisations and businesses like yours.


Benefits of Theatre Based Learning

  • It's a highly practical way of learning as it focuses on things that can be easily seen and understood.

  • It makes participants face limiting behaviours directly, enabling them to look at and discuss what's happening inside their organisation in a highly engaging way.

  • It allows people to witness their own and their colleagues behaviours as if they're looking into a mirror, helping them identify behaviours that need to change.

  • It actively encourages problem-solving, critical thinking, and shared responsibility and sense of purpose.

  • It matches a wide range of learning styles such as visual, verbal, physical and social.
