Mme Grandechance has advertised in the newspaper for young people willing to change their careers and seize an opportunity to get rich. Two very different people have been invited to turn up for interview (un entretien) - a bank clerk (un employé de banque) and a policeman (un agent de police)– although as yet they don’t know what sort of job to expect.
Magnus Magnifique claims to be the greatest teacher in the world and, unlike other teachers, he can teach every subject. Two students come to seek his aid. He insists that both girls are called Christine. Magnus tries to teach them history, geography, mathematics, music and languages but the girls object. They wish to become actresses.
F.T.F.S. brings the expertise of 25 years of language learning through drama to your school. During the summer we have been busy auditioning new cast members in France and preparing our new shows. Brochures will be sent to all schools at the beginning of the school year.
These plays have been written to be enjoyed, the emphasis being on fun and on 'learning by doing', but by skillfully including many of the topics required for Oral and Aural examinations they are excellent for re-enforcement and revision of classroom work. Also included are small parts for students, and that, with lots of general audience participation, ensures students gain confidence in their ability to communicate with real French people. Each play is written in carefully monitored language, vetted by practising French teachers and, of course, the actors are trained to speak slowly and clearly. The abundance of visual action and repetition allows students of all abilities to understand. In addition, we supply a résumé in English and a lexique for each student beforehand.
F.T.F.S. travels to schools all over Ireland and will fit in with your school timetable requirements.
The cast enjoy talking with students before and after performances.
The pride of F.T.F.S. is that we successfully provide education and entertainment in equal measure.
