Intext Performance's director and main performer is Chris Connaughton, an actor with twenty eight years of experience in all forms of theatre, television and radio. He now writes and produces work for young audiences as well as being the author of the 'Beltheron' series of fantasy novels for 9 year olds and upwards. The Beltheron books are available to buy  here.

 

This year Intext Performance is delighted to celebrate 18 years of high quality professional theatre and storytelling in schools. Since 1997 the company has produced 18 different story sessions mixing traditional tales and original writing, and 6 new plays based on classic texts. Many of these have been accompanied by literacy workshops. These link a number of curriculum areas. This year there is an added focus on raising boys' achievement in literacy, speaking and listening.
