Theater Plays in English
English-language shows for kindergartens and elementary schools
The primary objective of Ruskus’ theater plays in English is that all students can understand them, enjoy them and take benefit of them equally, either they have an excellent level of English, or they are working hard to improve it.
To achieve this understanding, during the performance words are linked to specific physical actions, so the gesture helps the understanding of language.
However, the distinctive feature of these shows in English is that, in addition to music and theater, they also include three performing arts:
Magic tricks specially adapted for each show.
Hand puppets and ventriloquist dolls to represent some characters.
The art of clowning bring humor and joy to the theatrical performance.
The delicious combination of clowning, magic and puppetry is one of the things that children love the most and English teachers use to recall in their assessments.
Check out the available shows: there are three beginners level plays for kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade, and four more advanced shows for 3rd to 6th grade.

Lots of fun! The kids had a great time! They were left with a lot of words and were amazed at the magic tricks!
– Iris, Institució Montserrat (Barcelona)
In just 40 minutes, a complete review of almost all the vocabulary worked on in the first two quarters of English in the first cycle. The students had a great time, the magic tricks were great and the performance was great.

It’s a very entertaining and fun play, with easy-to-understand vocabulary. The P4 and P5 kids had a great time.

3. SAVE MONEY
Significant savings are achieved when hiring a multi-session plan on the same day, as the successive sessions have a good discount (even if they are different works).
4. SAVE TIME
There is no need to move students to a theater, as all of these shows in English can be performed at school and can be adapted to any space (gym, classroom, playground, etc.).
