Shows for Schools
Big Telly Theatre Company in association with the Riverside Theatre present... A Degree of Danger
The university is in the grip of dark forces. Can you defeat them?
You will need to blag your way into and out of dangerous situations. You will need to operate undercover facing high security challenges. You will survive this adventure only by working as a team…
This is a very different type of theatre experience, designed for a generation looking for a mix of immersive storytelling, game-playing content and social interaction. This is audience as player, a heroine of their own story, not a passive witness.
This event is part of a special creative outreach programme for the local community as part of the 50 year anniversary celebrations on the Ulster University Coleraine campus this year.
*Limited daily capacity – early booking advised.
* Box Office will provide further information on starting times and locations closer to your visit.
Tickets: £5, teachers go free
