Our school productions are specifically created to assist students with their academic study. We keep Shakespeare’s original language, but condense the story, so it can easily slot within the school timetable. Performances are followed by Q&A sessions and interactive workshops, allowing the students to further explore the language, characters and interpretations of the main themes.

Our secondary school tours deliver a strong interpretation of the play to assist discussion, while displaying the dramatic impact of text in performance. Our cast comprises of four professional actors, who revel at the chance to engage with children and impart their unique knowledge and experience. The productions are cut, directed and designed by GSC’s professional team to the same standards as our main-house shows.

Primary School Tour
Our primary schools tour links the scenes through narration and involve the children throughout.
“We absolutely love working with the GSC and, once again, the quality of the performances and workshops is unparalleled. It’s all the children can talk about.” Guildford Grove School
The audience are involved through soundscapes, slow motion fights and our Shakespeare puppet, 'Little Will'. The children are also invited on stage to take on characters like King Duncan and The Nurse.
DETAILS OF FUTURE TOURS TO BE ANNOUNCED
We regularly take our productions to schools that wouldn’t normally be able to afford it. This is made possible through our partnerships with Delight Charity, The Geoff Herrington Foundation and Guildford Community Grants.
