We want all young people to have the opportunity to find their voice through Shakespeare.

We are passionate about the impact Shakespeare can have on every young person's life. We work with thousands of young people, teachers and partner theatres each year, who experience the extraordinary power of Shakespeare's language in their school and local community.

Shakespeare's language, words and sentences challenge young minds. They develop a new understanding and confidence with language and words.

We use the same techniques to teach Shakespeare that our actors use in the rehearsal room. Young people explore the words on their feet, speaking them aloud.

There are lots of ways we can help teachers and students use rehearsal room approaches to Shakespeare.
