Our live performances continue in Stratford, London, on tour and online this month.

Follow the elephant to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre

Our new family musical, The Magician's Elephant, continues in Stratford-upon-Avon this month.

The magical show marks the return of audiences to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre after the theatres were closed at the start of the pandemic. Tickets can be booked online, or you can call the Box Office on 01789 331111 to find out about our socially distanced performances taking place on Tuesday evenings throughout the month.

Plus, if you're visiting for our show on Friday 26 November, why not stay late for our post show Q&A with members of the company? Learn more about the show and its creation, working at the RSC and much more.

Register for our Learning events

Our next Schools' Broadcast will be available to schools from 15-19 November. Schools can register for free to see our 2016 production of The Tempest, which starred Simon Russell Beale as Prospero and used groundbreaking technology to create a digital avatar of Ariel that was controlled by and projected alongside actor Mark Quartley.

We also have two events based around The Magician's Elephant this month. Our Student Insight Session on 18 November gives students the chance to ask members of the acting and creative teams questions about the production, while the Primary Open Day on 25 November brings school groups together for a range of practical workshops.

Watch our shows from home

While live theatre is back up and running, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy our work from home, including our 2021 production of The Winter's Tale, available on BBC iPlayer, and Faith, our co-production with Coventry City of Culture Trust, accessible via YouTube.
