It is important to bring the whole audience along with the actors, so great emphasis is put on accessible dialogue and simple sentence construction.
We audition actors in Paris, Madrid and Berlin. All actors are trained to perform with clear and slow delivery and good use of mine to ensure the students can follow the play.
"Really brilliant, completely professional and fantastic with the kids.
The Y8s and 9s were thoroughly entertained!
Every play will have some element of audience participation. The actors interact with the audience throughout the play. Also some students will join the actors during the performance to undertake simple tasks. This is a great way of increasing their enjoyment and practising vocabulary.
We visit schools in all parts of the UK, Ireland and France
"The Onatti plays are notoriously spot on for our teenage audience.
Bringing Onatti in your school.
If you would like to bring a foreign language performance play to your students it is easy. Obviously you need to get the go-ahead from your school but, once you have that, booking Onatti is quick, friendly and simple.
Sorting out a date:
It might take a few emails back and forth between you and us as we just need to find a date which is good for you and when we are in your area.
