 Your students take a specialised tour of the theatre with an RSC guide so that they will learn about the history of the theatre and its patrons.  Guides will share a few behind the scenes stories to add a bit of the interest and insight into the lives the actors of today.  Students will then become actors for the day and go through rehearsals and explore context and characters.  Role plays and the interactive nature of the workshops makes learning fun and students will leave with a greater respect for Shakespeare.

Workshops are run by RSC Education Associate Practitioners all of whom have first-hand experience of working either as actor. Some of their practitioners are even directors and some have trained as theatre education specialists.

Arrive at Stratford-upon-Avon

Meet your Royal Shakespeare Company Host at the Theatre for a guided tour.  Your tour departs at 11.00 and lasts approximately one hour.  All tours are tailored to your students specific requirements depending on their age and the topics being covered.



Take a short break for lunch and refreshments.  A space can be booked in the restaurant for students to eat their packed lunches. Alternatively students could eat at the Clore Learning Centre.


Participate in a Workshop

Working as actors, students will explore the plays practically unlocking language and characters. Usually lasting two hours, workshops start with a short warm up which encourages students to work as a team and introduces them to key themes of the play.

Students will then start to work in more detail on the text bringing to life the language and key moments of the play, or looking at the whole play’s story arc depending on your schools request for the session.

Workshops often end with a performance opportunity but can also be tailored to your needs and early booking is recommended
