May Half Term Activities

Join us during May Half Term for a range of workshops and activities from theatre skills to storytelling. Tuesday 29 May - Friday 1 June 2018.

WORKSHOPS

Alongside our drop-in activities, exhibitions and events, you can take part in workshops, using approaches straight from our rehearsal rooms. These are broken down into three age ranges:

INTRODUCE


For ages 4-8 and their families/carers
Introduce the love of theatre and Shakespeare to your family with our series of fun and active 45 minute taster workshops and Shakespeare-themed activities for the whole family.

DISCOVER


For ages 8-12 and their families/ carers
Discover how our actors work in the rehearsal room to make theatre whilst learning more about Shakespeare’s plays. Workshops last between 90 minutes and two hours.

EXPLORE


For ages 13-17
These sessions will give a greater insight into our work and how we create theatre and bring Shakespeare to life. Workshops last between two to three hours or a whole day and are for young people to attend without their parents/carers.

Alongside our work for specific age ranges we also offer activities for all ages that the whole family can enjoy together.

Some of our workshops this half term are in preparation for our Midsummer Dance Party on 23 and 24 June. Find out more about the Midsummer Dance Party
