Following the success of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ last summer, we’re looking forward to performing the most famous love story ever written, ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
There will be public outdoor performances, and TeamAJP will also be offering practical workshops for schools, letting students take part in the action and proving that Shakespeare is fun, funny and still relevant!
Info for schools – We have put together a full day of activities all based around ‘Romeo and Juliet’ for during w/c 28th June 2021, suitable for both Keystage 2 and GCSE groups.
In the morning – intro to Shakespeare – who was he? Why do we study him? And why are his plays still relevant?
Then practical actor-led workshops on scenes that might be used as a basis for exam questions.
Followed by a crash course in stage combat from our fully qualified combat choreographers.
Performance of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – outdoors – an edited version featuring 6 actors playing multiple roles.
Price – £12pp with Pupil Premium places £6.
Venue – Studley Sports and Social Club, Warwickshire

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.
Workshops for GCSE students will concentrate on key scenes often used in exams. Keystage 2 workshops will aim towards enhancing pupils’ enjoyment and understanding of language, whilst building confidence in their approach to Shakespeare.
‘Romeo and Juliet’ is a GCSE set text, last year our production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ was such a great success that we thought it would be a good idea to combine all of these things into something both fun and educational for secondary schools. An end of term educational treat!
