Enrol in The School for Wise Children and take part in a free practical workshop. Experience first-hand how Wise Children build an ensemble and create their critically acclaimed shows.

The School for Wise Children Theatre Makers Taster Day

13 May, 10am - 5pm, Clore Learning Centre, Stratford-upon-Avon
Free (Fully Booked)

In this day-long practical workshop you will play games, learn songs and devise. You will experience first-hand how Wise Children builds an ensemble and creates their critically acclaimed shows. Actors, singers, musicians, dancers, directors, acrobats, clowns, and theatre-makers are all invited. You don’t need loads of experience, but you do need to be a confident performer.

All participants are encouraged to see The Buddha of Suburbia (RSC co-production with Wise Children), either before or after the workshop to get the most out of the day.

The RSC and Wise Children actively encourage people from a variety of backgrounds with different experiences, skills, and stories to join us and influence our work. We know that people who are D/deaf disabled or neurodiverse, from the global majority and / or from a lower socio-economic background are under-represented in the theatre industry. Therefore, if someone identifies as having one or multiple of these protected characteristics, we are particularly interested in meeting them.

Our taster days are an ideal way to connect with regional artists that we wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to meet. Perfect for theatre makers aged 18+.  

What the workshop attendees need:

  • Comfortable clothes to move in
  • Any instruments you play and are happy to use in the workshop
  • A willingness to have fun!
