7 TOP Reasons Why You Should Choose Us
Your Interactive Theatre Company.
Join-In! You are part of the cast.
We believe that there is no better way of developing skills and personality than by being an active part of the learning process, this is fundamentally why Interactive theatre is so powerful, and so much fun!
We are proud to have developed an innovation in English Educational Theatre in Southamerica: Join-In!, in which audiences are engaged in the process of creating and performing so they become a crucial part of the final event, as important as the professional players. We are also excited to have released this option on the World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People which is celebrated every year on the 20th March since 2001!
We involve the audience and this encourages an emotional connection to the work, making it more memorable.
As well as learning about subjects and issues through drama by participating, the pupils are also developing other social and interactive skills such as communication, public speaking, negotiation, awareness of themselves and others, teamwork, improved concentration, and self-confidence. It is also really great for kids to watch their peers in performance, creating an “I can do that!” wavelength, and giving them healthy goals for the future.
We would like to Join you in! because we are convinced of the positive results that theatre brings into our lives, especially for those involved in it actively. Audiences are not bystanders. Artists must encourage an approach that nurtures those who are keen to share the stage with them.
Note: Tales/ Inc.’s actors are trained to work with young participants, so rest assured that this will become a rich and delightful experience for all.
Tailor - Made
Tales/ Inc’s plays are designed and graded according to students’ age, maturity, and interests. Together with Tales/ Inc., you will discover our style of British humour which mirrors your school´s values and reveals our company character as modern, fresh, and different.

We have specially designed the whole structure of our company to produce hassle-free plays that can reach you wherever you are at very affordable rates! We come to you = safe and convenient.
We choose to work with small groups of students because we wish every child to feel confident enough to participate.

Our Fab Resources
We can make our performances even more magical! Video or image projections, music and more!
Whenever you wish to present your students with something new and different, our Multimedia Performances are ideal since they are perfect!: in our multimedia shows, images from child stories and/or videos are projected onto a screen for the actors to interact with. These elements along with songs and props not only make the performance more magical and enjoyable but contribute towards the comprehension of the play.
"The values we impart to our children today, consciously and unconsciously, will have a major impact on society tomorrow. If we continue to leave the teaching of values to change, we, as a nation, risk losing an integral piece of our culture altogether." P. Schiller & T. Bryant
