Taking bookings now for our Shakespeare Tour of A Midsummer Nights Dream – March 2019!
We love Shakespeare and in particular we love helping young people to understand just why Shakespeare’s plays are still relevant today. Love and hate, magic and the supernatural, tricks and jokes, murder and madness, what’s not to love about Shakespeare and his amazing plays?!
A great option for one class per day. Working with our creative director your class create a 15 minute performance of a Shakespeare play which is shown to an invited audience at the end of the day.
We use a mixture of scripted work and devising to create a condensed, modernised performance of a Shakespeare play unique to your class. Each pupil will have a speaking part as a character, narrator or chorus member and all participants will be actively involved using choral speech, sound effects, songs, movement and mime.
Can be used as an exciting introduction to Shakespeare, to bring the play to life or as a fun filled conclusion to learning about Shakespeare.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Love, fairies, mischief and magic in this classic Shakespearean comedy.
