There is as much Shakespearian activity in London and Stratford today as there has ever been since the late 16th century.
That Shakespeare is relevant is evidenced by the fact that actors of the calibre of Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench are appearing in Winter’s Tale at the launch of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company.
Its vibrancy can be revealed through a visit to any of the key Shakespearian locations: the Globe Theatre, the RSC and Shakespeare’s birthplace, and the museums and sites of Stratford.
And the fact that Shakespeare is exciting is immediately apparent to any school group that participates in our fun and educational workshops which offer your students new insight into the essence of his work at the same time as developing their creative vision and encouraging original thought.
In London StudyTrips’ workshops are designed to underpin the ‘page to performance’ nature of Shakespeare’s plays which serves to bring his characters to life.
At the Globe there are actors’ workshops, lectures, theatre tours, and a wide range of 90 minute sessions exploring the language, the location and the culture, the theatre space, the audience and their impact on playing style and language.
One can also engage in a Shakespeare’s London walking tour, take in a West End Show, a meal at Planet Hollywood, etc, etc.
Stratford-upon-Avon is equally an ideal location to explore Shakespeare’s work. StudyTrips can arrange backstage tours, great rates to see world-class productions, and workshops which have been developed to support the KS3, KS4-5 and A level syllabi.
There is also the Theatre Text in Context interactive talk and the Theatre Text in Action practical workshop led by a drama educator.
