  • Operation Blitzed – Big Telly Theatre Company

    Between October 2011 and April 2012 Big Telly Theatre Company delivered Operation Blitzed in 16 post primary schools in the Coleraine, Cookstown and Magherafelt district council areas, and in addition to the Magherafelt Campus of Northern Regional College. The main aim of the project was to raise awareness among young people including teachers and staff as to the consequences of alcohol consumption by young people.

    The project included a piece of invisible theatre delivered in each of the schools. Each event involved two actors who were dressed in the relevant school uniform. Actors delivered their scripted drama in the main assembly hall of the college unannounced as if the incident was taking place in real life.

    Following the drama the school’s principal made the same scripted announcement explaining the context of the drama and its purpose in raising awareness as to the consequences of alcohol consumption by young people.

    The pupils were then involved in a series of workshops facilitated by the actors to ascertain the degree of impact the drama had on pupils and any significant impact it had on their attitudes to alcohol consumption.

    Following the success of the Operation Blitzed, Big Telly Theatre Company are seeking sponsorship to run the show and workshops again.
