Lively Action Storytelling – Primary


Lively Action Storytelling at Shakespeare’s Globe

Introduce your Key Stage 2 classes to Shakespeare’s most exciting tales with experienced Globe Education Practitioners.

We present interactive versions of Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest. These encourage your pupils to explore Shakespeare’s enduring narratives not just as listeners, but as storytellers too.

These sessions have been created to complement the requirements of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2. They help your pupils deepen their understanding of the ways in which they can imagine and recreate stories.

Lively Action Storytelling sessions take place in our beautiful Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
