for KS3 and KS4 performed in your school

“All the teachers agree this was the best performance and drama experience which we have ever seen. I would recommend this company to all schools.”
Fort Pitt Grammar School, Chatham

Four Young Shakespeare Company actors visit your school with a thought-provoking, entertaining and insightful exploration of Shakespeare in performance. We combine clear, accessible and well-paced acting with challenging yet inclusive workshop activities. The emphasis throughout is on the importance of choice and interpretation in the process of putting on a play. Taking suggestions from the students, our skilled actors explore the choices of the rehearsal process and allow the students to see their ideas put into practice, offering new insights into the text in performance.

An informative and thought-provoking interactive workshop followed by a fully-staged hour long adaptation of the play including all the main characters and scenes. The Young Shakespeare Company has an outstanding reputation for clear and accessible interpretations of Shakespeare in which the vitality of Shakespeare’s words is complemented by bold staging and strong characterisation to bring the play alive for a new generation of theatre-goers
