Shakespeare in the Classroom

At MadCap Theatre Productions we offer a wide variety of educational workshops that bring the works of Shakespeare and other classical playwrights 'off the page'. Our plays are always praised for being accessible and understandable, and our workshops do that directly.

 

We encourage schools, colleges, universities and theatres to work with us to create opportunities for students to develop their understanding of classical theatre and language.

 

We offer a range of tailored workshops for both English Literature and Drama/Theatre Studies students and also actors who have finished formal education and want to broaden their knowledge around classical performance.

Students can work with themes of the plays, translating character emotions and story lines into modern English and scenarios. It encourages students to 'play' with the text to increase interest in the subject and ultimately result in better understanding and recall when presented with any Shakespearean text.
