Schools - Touring
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.
Each tour is targeted at a specific age-group and we can follow our performances Q&A sessions and interactive workshops, allowing the students to further explore the language, characters and interpretations of the main themes.Secondary School Tour
Our secondary school tours delivers 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.
