West End in Schools

Primary school children join together to learn and perform a Shakespeare play in a single day! Experience Shakespeare’s plays through drama, available in person or live-on-screen.

When children perform Shakespeare's plays they come to life! 

Outstanding West End in Schools drama facilitators introduce primary school children to Shakespeare in their own school hall. 

Children work class-by-class in your school hall to explore the play's story and characters through performance. They are guided by an expert facilitator who encourages them to use their creativity and imaginations, with each session tailored for the age of the children.

Up to 210 children can experience their very own rehearsal and performance of a Shakespeare play - all in one amazing day! 

“We had a truly fabulous day learning about and performing 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' The whole day was engaging and enjoyed by all from our youngest who are still only 4 to the Year 6 who handled the theme of love very well! Our facilitator was brilliant the children loved him and responded with enthusiasm and a sense of admiration for him.”
Headteacher, Lawford CofE Voluntary Aided Primary School
