DIVE INTO SHAKESPEARE WITH YOUR CLASS

In-person Student Matinees are back!


Whether it’s your students’ first experience with live arts, or an opportunity to bring the page to life as a supplement to your curriculum, our Student Matinee series has something for every class. 

Your experience begins with a live performance on the stage of the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s indoor theatre, the Blackfriars Playhouse. With your Student Matinee booking, you’ll receive a FREE study guide to supplement your lesson plans and unleash the wonder of Shakespeare in the classroom before and after the show. Plus – you can enhance your experience with an interactive workshop with our Education Team.

By putting words into action, our comprehensive approach sends students back to the classroom with a fresh look and appreciation for curriculum titles (and more).
