Online Sessions during lockdown

This is a time like no other, but we have all had to adapt and find new ways of connecting with our friends, family and those we usually see on a regular basis.

MED Theatre understand that, while young people are not at school, their screen time is increased by home schooling and other extra curricular activities all taking place online. We strive to offer online sessions that, while taking place on Zoom, are still interactive and creative, allowing them to stretch their imaginations and bodies!

If you would like to join us for our online sessions during the pandemic, please email our Education Officer, Helen, at


At MED Theatre we know that from early on it is important to nurture young people’s creativity and vivid imaginations. Our Rising Lights group for 5 to 7 year olds, led by Suvi Rehell, focuses on having fun while learning stories and facts. We use local Dartmoor folklore and legends to inspire new stories, games, plays, music and much more…

creative session for 8-12s

In this group, led by MED Theatre’s Artistic Director Mark Beeson and Education Officer Helen Gilbert, we alternate between playwriting and drama skills, so that we have plenty of opportunity to expand our thinking and share our ideas while also understanding how theatre works in the world and how our local area can inspire our creativity!
