Don’t miss our special live broadcasts of THE PLAY’S THE THING on 23rd April!

To celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, we are broadcasting this popular introduction to Shakespeare for all ages. CONTACT US to book your school’s place in our digital audience!

Each live-streamed performance is accessed via YouTube, for £150 (+VAT) per school. This can be watched in your classroom or school hall, on laptops and tablets, or sent home so that students can watch independently. Each show is available on catch up for seven days after the initial broadcast, and every performance is followed by a live Q&A session with our actors.

A Christmas Carol, Online!

In December, our hugely popular text-study production of A Christmas Carol makes its online debut! Join our audience from December 15-17, when the classic story is brought to life by our talented professional actors. Including analysis and narration, this abridged telling of the story is a perfect festive treat for secondary school students.

Christmas with Dickens!

We are very excited to introduce our brand new festive show, Christmas With Dickens! Join the Cratchit family as they prepare for their winter celebrations. Will the Miserly Mr Scrooge learn the true value of Christmas? What will become of poor Pip and his mysterious meeting on Christmas Eve? And will young Oliver Twist find friends in the big city? Featuring music, games and characters from some of Dickens’ best-loved creations, this is an end-of-term treat perfect for Primary schools (and beyond!) Your school can also receive an activity pack before the show, so your pupils can join in the fun.

I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the virtual performance of ‘Macbeth’ on Tuesday.  We have already had comments from students saying that it really helped revise the text and interestingly focus on key quotes and characters. We will certainly be looking out for future opportunities to engage with these events

Student audience feedback:

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this showcase as I learned many new things whilst being entertained. Thank you, I found it amazing .

I think the green screen for the backgrounds really helped make it feel like a real live play at a real theatre.

 This gave an extraordinary overview of Shakespeare.
