Get Ready for Blast off!


RISE Theatre's New Interactive Primary Day 




















After the success of 2 years touring primary schools with their Mustard Seed Day, visiting over 50 schools across the UK, RISE Theatre are developing a brand new interactive day for the whole school to take part in, going further than they have ever travelled before!

Join us on a breathtaking journey of discovery around the earth and into space,

learning about the beauty of God's creation, His incredible love for every person, and how each of us can care for our planet and the environment, from the depths of the jungle to the snow capped peaks of the north pole!

Join God's Awesome Planet!

RISE Theatre are offering primary schools the opportunity for the whole school to participate in our exciting new day 'God’s Planet'.

‘God’s Planet' features a morning assembly with original songs written by singer-songwriter Charley Pinfold, songs and dramatic actions taught by the RISE team, art activities facilitated by your teachers, all culminating in an exhilarating interactive afternoon show for the whole school.

Get ready for blast off!
Each child becomes part of story by being divided into 2 groups, discovering peaks of mountains, the depths of the sea, the multicoloured rainforest and the never ending awe of outer space!

All of the school will take part in art activities and contribute to props for the story. Simple step-by-step art activity guidelines will be provided by the RISE team in advance, for each teacher to facilitate on the day. In-between classroom art activities, EYFS, KS1 & KS2 will join together for a rehearsal in the hall to learn original songs and dramatic actions facilitated by the RISE team, ready for the afternoon show. The RISE team will be on hand to coordinate the day, working together with your school to create a memorable performance.

God's epic universe!

The day is based on God the Creator (Genesis 1) with the interactive show exploring and discovering the awe and beauty in God's creation and how we are a part of God's beautiful creation - fearfully and wonderfully made!

Why book?

'God’s Planet' is an opportunity for your school to learn more about practical ways we can care for our planet in a fun, accessible and engaging format. Through interactive sessions, your pupils will creatively explore climate change issues and what it means to be a good steward of our planet, as well as develop an understanding of who God is and encourage each child in their God-given potential. It is an opportunity for the whole school to participate, get creative and to share in a performance your school can be proud of.

Covid-secure Guidelines

We will constantly be reviewing government guidelines and best practice advice over the coming months. For example, we plan to put special measures in place to not only to safeguard our actors but to ensure that the safety of the schools we visit is not compromised and that we operate in a COVID-secure way. In its current format, the God's Planet performance and workshops will be performed from a stage area set up at the front of a school hall, therefore ensuring a 2 metre distance between actors and pupils at all times. In addition, we will carry out daily temperature checks of our actors, thorough cleaning and sanitising of all props and set before arrival, as well as discussions with school staff prior to the day to minimise the need for meetings of larger groups on the school premises.

If there are any questions you may have or if you would like further clarification about how we plan to be COVID-secure then please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do whatever we can to make you feel as confident as possible having outside visitors to your school once again.


Testimonials from "The Mustard Seed Day" A previous RISE THEATRE interactive show:


“From start to finish, a truly uplifting day! The final performance was extremely moving and spiritual as all pupils collaborated together to sing, perform and display their art. You showed us that we have an important part to play in nurturing our own growth and the growth of our community.” St George's Catholic Primary School, Harrow

"Pupils and staff loved the RISE Theatre Mustard Seed Experience. Staff commented that it was really nice to spend time with pupils and engage with them on a different level." 
Our Lady Queen of Heaven Primary School, Crawley

"Every single child was smiling and having fun, even those who deem themselves ‘too cool’. Thank you so much - we will definitely be booking again in the future!" 
Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Leigh.
