Some examples of what we have offered include:

 

Shakespeare

A fun session using the insults of Shakespeare to get to grips with the language of the Bard.

Stage Combat and Make-Up

An introduction to safe, unarmed stage combat and the make-up needed to create the resulting wounds!

Puppets

A starter workshop using basic puppetry skills. A useful team building exercise.

Dramatic Maths and Scientific Stages

Drama is a way of involving all students in the classroom and is a particularly effective way of engaging those who are not naturally drawn to maths and science. These workshops offer a creative and participatory way of learning for STEM subjects.

Practitioner Workshops

We offer introductory and more in-depth workshops in the methods of Boal, Meyerhold or Grotowski.

Industry Days

A half day visit to the Theatre Royal – meet our staff, go behind the scenes and discover all about a career in the theatre in the different departments from marketing to technical.

One Day Play

A full day workshop for a class-sized group to create their own production through devising a theme, covering writing, directing and design skills.

In Addition

Schools Tour

Discover why the Theatre Royal is one of the most significant theatre buildings in the country. Our tours provide a fascinating and lively insight into the Theatre’s history and the history of theatre!
