A Midsummer Night’s Dream Workshops and Performances for Schools
We are offering free workshops to participating schools who book to see a performance! These workshops will look at the themes thrown up in the text and are designed to show how actors and directors approach their work. Shakespeare's plays were primarily written to be performed, not read. Therefore with this in mind, the workshops aim to be practical and relevant. To suit all secondary age groups. Please call our Box Office staff direct to enquire about matinees and workshops.

We welcome enquiries from individuals, schools and community groups, so don’t be afraid to ask. We’d also love to hear from you with ideas for projects you have in mind.
