Big Bard Workshops

Option one : Play in a Day 
Your KS2 students will become a part of Shakespeare's cast of actors and will spend a day working on an adapted 15 minute mini play. Our experienced actor will direct the children with the aim of performing to the rest of the school at the end of the day. You can choose out of two Shakespeare mini plays of; Macbeth or A Midsummer Night's Dream. 
This workshop is fantastic for a year 6 leavers assembly, where you can invite parents and carers along to watch what they have learnt in the day. It will certainly give them a huge boost of confidence to move onto secondary school.
If you wanted more time to work on the play and perhaps add your own spin on it, then you will be given a copy of our mini script free of charge. 
Option two: Shakey Snip-its
One of our professional actors will deliver a 60 minute roller coaster ride of Shakespeare insults and lots of laughs. Your students will learn key themes of either  Macbeth or Midsummer Nights dream through role-play, games and movement. This option is great for KS1 & 2
