Shakespeare Education Workshops

Reading, seeing or studying a Shakespeare play for the first time can be daunting!

Whether it’s primary school students approaching Shakespeare’s work for the first time, or GCSE students tackling complex play texts, Stute Theatre’s accessible workshops and modern approach can offer young people a series of practical tools for understanding and enjoying Shakespeare’s work.

Shakespeare is for everyone! You don’t need to be posh to study Shakespeare.

There are no special skills or training needed to be able to enjoy Shakespeare’s plays – but there are a few hints and tips that can help.

Stute Shakespeare workshops are designed to give young people the confidence to analyse, understand and even perform Shakespeare’s work by using a practical actor’s approach.

Sophia Hatfield is an experienced workshop leader and classical actor and has delivered engaging, though-provoking and fun sessions for groups ranging from Key Stage 2, to GCSE, A-Level and beyond. Community groups, youth theatres and classroom groups across the country have already benefitted from this flexible, inclusive and accessible approach to The Bard!

These workshops can be tailored to any of Shakespeare’s plays, any age group and flexible in length and class size.
