Power and Duty Playmaking Festival 2017 – Warwickshire Schools’ Performances

Week beginning 3 July 2017

We have a limited number of places for Warwickshire schools to perform their version of The Tempest at our Power and Duty Playmaking Festival 2017. In order to be considered for this opportunity, we would like schools to perform their version in their own school environments between April and June 2017 and invite along a member of RSC Education. After this opportunity, we will select five schools who will be offered production support in June 2017 and will be invited to perform during the Power and Duty Playmaking Festival in July 2017.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Georgia Munnion to discuss further.


Staging Shakespeare: summer programme for Warwickshire 16-18 year olds

Tuesday 25 – Thursday 27 July 2017

This three day programme will enable young people living in Warwickshire and Coventry to explore the current productions of Julius Caesar and Antony & Cleopatra, with actors and directors from the companies.

Young people will get a better understanding of the plays by thinking about them in the same way actors do in rehearsal with opportunities to:

  • Take part in workshops led by creatives and directors from the companies. Young people will explore the plays and think about some of the choices that have been made whilst staging the plays. 
  • Watch both productions and afterwards talk to members of both companies.
  • Gain skills in understanding the language in the plays.
  • Consider how the staging of these plays changes what the plays mean and how we then might understand them differently as an audience.

Who should apply?

Staging Shakespeare is suitable for English and/or Drama students from aged 16 to 18 who live or attend a school in Warwickshire or Coventry, and who have an interest in or would like to develop their understanding of Julius Caesar and Antony & Cleopatra as plays in performance and experiencing the processes of staging these plays for modern audiences.

Where is Staging Shakespeare held?

Staging Shakespeare will be held at our Clore Learning Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon from 10am-6pm.

How much does it cost?

The total cost is £125, including one ticket to Julius Caesar on Wednesday 26 July at 7.15pm and one ticket to Antony & Cleopatra on Thursday 27 July at 7.15pm.* Bursary places are available on request.

How do you book?  

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Georgia Munnion or call her on 01789 403432 to discuss further.
