'Digital Theatre+ has been an excellent resource for our students and department. The videos, resources and teacher packs have saved me time and really helped with home learning. There are a range of exercises for us to develop and use. My  KS3 students have loved watching performances, discussing all elements and are using drama terminology at a higher level. Thank you Digital Theatre+!'
