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 participate in drama-based learning and 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 learning to accelerate 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 experts at utilising drama-based learning 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.
