In these interactive pre-show sessions students are invited to join members of the acting company and creative teams in the theatre to explore how the production was brought to life on stage.

Our buildings and theatres are currently closed, in line with government guidance. This includes our restaurants, exhibitions, cafes, tours and hire services. We won’t have any full theatre productions until 2021, but our activity continues online and supporting teachers, children and young people in schools. Find out more
