Foreign Language Drama/Theatre Troupes?

    Does anyone know of any British based foreign language drama troupes?
    I am introducing German at a primary school next year and I want to use some of my budget to book a drama group to come in and act out a play for the whole school/KS2. I hope this will launch language learning and make it as multi-sensory as possible.
    Whilst I am actually introducing German as the main language, I would be interested in any information about any MFL drama groups. As it's a primary something really well known would be great, such as Golilocks or Hansel and Gretel, but I am happy to take any advice anyone might have to offer. I hope other teachers out there might have done something like this.
    If there are none that can come to Birmingham I might have to find a backup option of approaching a local secondary and asking them to get some pupils to act out a basic play. It might be a fun project for more able pupils at KS3 or a GCSE group. I did this previously as I am a secondary trained MFL teacher working in primary. Are you in a Birmingham secondary and interested in such a project?
    Thanks for any ideas you can pass on.

  3. We use Onatti theatre group. They travel throughout the UK. We are a secondary school so the level might be higher than what you need.
