Rocking Romeo and Jiving Juliet – KS2 & KS3
Our version of Shakespeare’s tragic love story is brought to life through a participatory play – pupils become part of the action, portraying characters, helping with sound effects, and exploring the motivations of the characters. Volunteer pupils will be able to play small parts, acting with the professional actors. The show explores the themes of the play through song. The simplified storyline and use of a storyteller helps ensure pupils can follow the play throughout. We don’t offer a follow up workshop but a longer interactive session so all pupils can gain better access to the play, it’s characters, theme and language.
- Number of children in show: Maximum 120
- Length of show: 90 minutes
- Space needed: Requires the use of a school hall or drama studio.
- Works best with: Years 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.confirm with you as soon as possible.
Pucks Midsummer Night’s Dream – KS1 & SEN
Music, magic, high jinks and just a sprinkling of love – this magical interactive children’s version of Shakespeare’s original is shown from the viewpoint of Puck who’s been playing his usual tricks, “on the humans, who are a bit thick.” In keeping with this year’s musical theme this show contains interactive songs pupils (and teachers!) can join in with. As well as introducing younger audiences to Shakespeare it delivers messages of self-awareness, friendship and emotional wellbeing.
