At Sharp Tack Productions we have three loves - children, education and entertainment.

As such our company was formed in 1988 as a specialist touring theatre company devoted to the delivery of high quality live theatre-in-education performances in schools.

Our aim was to offer teachers and pupils something entertaining, informative and 'a little bit different' in education. We sought to bring educational themes and concepts to life using the theatrical devices of drama, humour, character and narrative. All our work is based on the firm belief that if children are engaged with and enjoying what they are seeing or doing, then the information provided will be easily absorbed.

We have used what we have learned from theatre-in-education to develop a broader range of educational workshops and presentations that are designed to further enrich and enhance your childrens' educational journeys.

Furthermore by supplementing our live work with educational DVD production we have enabled our work to be seen by larger audiences worldwide.

Since 1988 our performances, workshops and DVDs have been seen by over 200,000 students in close to 1000 schools worldwide, as well as at teacher conferences, seminars, teacher education colleges and awards nights.

If you are reading this then perhaps you share our passion and belief that educating our children is one of the most important tasks on earth, and that if information is delivered in a fun, enjoyable and engaging manner, then children are far more likely to absorb, retain and use that information.

We hope you will find something on our site that is of interest to you, and we look forward to hearing from you or meeting you soon!
