"It was a perfectly pitched workshop. The girls felt really challenged and stimulated, and they really stepped up to that challenge. They enjoyed themselves immensely and are still talking about it. "

Key stage 4 workshops

We offer a choice of two Lively Action workshops at Key Stage 4:

 

Workshop: Playing the Globe

A 90 minute session led by one of our Practitioners, including:

  • A half hour guided visit to the theatre.
  • A one hour workshop based on any Shakespeare play of your choice.

 

This session provides a practical introduction to the performance conditions at the Globe, exploring how this shapes playing style and language. The workshop can augment national curriculum study of a Shakespeare text for coursework or exam study at Key Stage 4, making connections between time and literary traditions and exploring language as a key to engaging with character and structure.
