Write Here Write Now

The RSC has launched Write Here Write Now with Matilda, a new education programme designed to inspire children to become creative writers, imaginative playwrights and avid readers. Inspired by the themes of Matilda The Musical, this free online resource features filmed interviews with Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin, together with interactive web tools and comprehensive teacher notes for use in the classroom.
 
To celebrate the launch of Write Here Write Now with Matilda, the RSC are setting a National Writing Challenge which invites school students (aged 8-13yrs) to create an original script or song for a special performance by the cast at the Cambridge Theatre in June 2013. All entries will go through a full script selection process and six songs or scenes will be fully rehearsed before being performed in front of the students and their classmates, all of whom will stay on to see Matilda The Musical.
 
The journey starts here. Find out how you or your school can join in.
