"RISE have a remarkable way of communicating Gospel values to young people which is both fun and contemporary but also deeply profound. They captivated our Year 9's throughout their Retreat day and both staff and students have already made requests for them to return in 2017."
Assistant Chaplain, St George's College, Weybridge
"We were so privileged to welcome RISE Theatre into our school to work with our students.
The day was packed full of all sorts that was moving, informative, prayerful, deepening, funny, hilarious at times and so inspiring. As a school chaplain, I would strongly recommend booking this extremely talented team to come into your schools and churches. From just one day, I know that they planted many seeds amongst our young people (and staff!) and helped to change many lives for the better. I was personally lifted and renewed in faith by their work and have already booked them to come again."
Chaplain, Sacred Heart Catholic High School, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
"RISE Theatre had thoroughly prepared the day which ensured they related to the age group perfectly. They were professional and had the ability to keep the students engaged and interested throughout. They were fun and employed ice breakers and team exercises effectively to involve everyone and used original material – drama and song – to convey their message. The students and staff were overwhelmingly positive and really benefited from the sessions, experiencing faith in a fun and relevant context. I highly recommend RISE!"
Chaplain, Notre Dame School, Cobham
