Schools Productions

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.

FILMED PRODUCTIONS 2021

As part of our coronavirus response, Guildford Shakespeare Company recently recorded new school productions of Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. Each performance was adapted specifically for GCSE students and is accompanied by over 100 minutes of additional cast interviews and scenes in rehearsal.

“It has been fantastic to be able to offer students the opportunity to watch a production which was created with them in mind. It was a wonderful experience for them during a year which has been very different and difficult.” Cobham Free School

Secondary School Tour

Our secondary school tours deliver a strong interpretation of the play to assist discussion, while displaying the dramatic impact of text in performance.

“As always the performers were a fantastic representation of GSC and their enthusiasm, passion and professionalism was clear for all to see .” Jamie Foster, Bishop David Brown School

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.


Outreach

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.

“It was the best performance we’ve ever had at the school and I’ve been a year 6 teacher for a long time!” Cathy Waters, Town Farm Primary School
