About:

"Surpassed all expectations, a fabulous day: the girls were interested and engaged throughout the whole experience" Fiona Mcwilliam, Claires Court, English Dept, Maidenhead

Sky Blue's workshops are specially designed to engage young learners and are completely interactive. Not only are your students the stars of the show, with costumes to wear, props to wield, and tales to be told all under our expert direction; but the students are also encouraged to redirect the actors in key scenes and evaluate the outcome.

Our workshops run as follows but we are always flexible to your needs.
Workshop (2 Hours - up to 120 students)
Professional Sky Blue actors encourage willing students to take to the stage and each is given a role, costume and appropriate props.

Scene-by-scene we lead students through the story of the play encouraging them to perform, improvise, think, use their own words and entertain their audience of classmates.

Performed scenes; an in depth look at key scenes and a chance for students to re-direct our actors and evaluate the outcome.

A sometimes gruesome, always entertaining 'tour' of Shakespeare's Globe theatre... Rotten veg included for free.

Finally we perform a scene in full raucous, Elizabethan style. With costumes, wigs, melodramatic deaths and a man in a dress!

The Workshops we currently offer are Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing and Introduction to Shakespeare, although if you have a particular play you are looking at we may be able to work with you.

"Our students loved all the stages of the performance - the explanations, the performance, the interaction and jokes - the whole lot! Has given them a real taste for something that children nowadays can otherwise tend to class as inaccessible or dated."
