Following the success of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ over the past couple of years, we are looking forward to bringing ‘Macbeth’ to audiences in Summer 2022!
TeamAJP will be offering practical workshops for schools, letting students take part in the action and proving that Shakespeare is fun, funny and still relevant!
We will be providing a full day of activities all based around Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ , suitable for school groups. A perfect educational treat for students in The Midlands.
An intro to Shakespeare – who was he? Why do we study him? And why are his plays still relevant? Actor led workshops featuring key scenes from the text. A crash course in stage combat. All followed by an outdoor performance of ‘Macbeth’ in our own unique style!
We aim towards enhancing pupils’ enjoyment and understanding of language, whilst building confidence in their approach to Shakespeare. We can accommodate KS1 – KS5 .
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form. We are happy to discuss your requirements.
Our Artistic Director Jennifer Rigby will be creating the workshops. Jen’s specialism is Shakespeare. She worked as Actor/Manager and Drama Education Officer at Shakespeare Birthplace Trust for several years before spending 12 months with the Education Department at The Royal Shakespeare Company.
After our 2020 production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ was such a great success, we thought it would be a good idea to combine all of these things into something both fun and educational for secondary schools. In 2021 we had a created school workshops for ‘Romeo and Juliet’ which were very well received and we will be continuing to provide fun, educational school workshops with ‘Macbeth’ in 2022!
