TIE company develops new funding solution
StopWatch Theatre Company says it is fighting to keep road safety theatre-in-education alive in the UK by developing a new way of funding one of its programmes.
‘Footsteps the Movie’ has been touring the UK since 2008, with each performance creating a short road safety film starring the pupils demonstrating how to cross the road safely.
Parents are now being offered the opportunity to buy a copy of the film on DVD to offset the cost of the performance.
Producer Adrian New said: “Our research shows that Keystage 1 parents would be delighted to own a copy of a short film featuring their child and classmates. And in doing so they are receiving a personal and unique road safety message that their child will want to watch over and over.
“Theatre-in-education has been an invaluable tool for road safety officers for over 20 years and we want to make sure it remains so despite the difficult financial climate.”
