Our commitment to education has been central to the tour since it started just over 60 years ago. Our mission is to keep the study and performance of Shakespeare accessible, relevant and exciting for audiences in Cambridge and beyond.
Educational material, including workshops delivered by our Education Officer and an Education Pack, compliments the performance of the show as well as explores the ideas raised in more detail. Both the workshops and education pack are created from a theatrical perspective, bringing together the dynamic ideas of our touring show and offering students the opportunity to visualise the text beyond the page (because that’s how Shakespeare wanted it to be seen!).
With discussion topics, dramatic exercises, explorations of Shakespeare’s language, and activities for the classroom, the pack is created to ensure that readers from school children to University academics will find something engaging and thoughtful.
This year’s Education Pack is available upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
