Opportunities for Secondary Schools

Curriculum based workshops

York Theatre Royal offers round the year curriculum based workshops that are available in school and at the theatre. Download our Experience brochure below to see some of the opportunities available. If you can’t see what you are looking for, please contact us as bespoke projects are usually possible.

 

 

Workshops around productions

Workshops:

A Number by Caryl Churchill

The ethics and moral debate around cloning. Taking an active approach to exploring the morals and ethics of this divisive subject, we will explore the issues surrounding cloning, working from the text in a lively and stimulating way.

 

Compare and contrast: The work of Caryl Churchill. This workshop, especially suitable for post-16 will explore the wide canon of Churchill work’s, pulling together her earlier work on Top Girls and Cloud Nine through to her more contemporary work, focusing on A Number. We will explore what ties her work thematically and theatrically to provide students with an overview of one of the foremost playwrights of her generation.

 Both workshops are available in school or at the theatre, as pre or post-show workshops at a cost of £150 for 2hrs. To book contact julian.ollive@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk

 

 

York Theatre Royal ReAct schools festival

York Theatre Royal hosted a festival of narrative around our production of Shakespeare's Richard III. The ReAct festival took place over one day on our Main House stage on November 25th with each of the four participating schools having the opportunity to perform a 30 minute piece. Using the story as a starting point groups made interpretive choices of how they used the play in creating their piece. This could mean; using the play's themes as a starting point to devise from, telling the story from Richard's point of view or it could be working from an abridged version of the play itself.

The festival was open to whichever age group and with any sized group (as long as they will fit on our stage!) If you would like any further information about taking part in the festival in future years contact Julian Ollive on 01904 658162 or email schools@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk

Participating schools in 2013 were: Huntington School, The Joseph Rowntree School and York High School. 

 

The Royal Shakespeare Company - Learning Performance Network

York Theatre Royal and York High School are working together as part of the RSC's Learning Performance Network. This is a three year partnership of working together to bring about a significant change in the way that young people experience, engage with, and take ownership of the work of Shakespeare.

The LPN offers teachers in depth training in active approaches to Shakespeare, postgraduate action research and offers performance opportunities to young people and further school-initiated projects.York High as the 'hub' school, will work with up to seven 'cluster' schools from their locality to share training and produce a Shakespeare performance festival at York Theatre Royal.  

The LPN represents the RSC's Stand up for Shakespeare manifesto in action, with its call for children and young people to:

  • Do Shakespeare on your feet
  • See it live
  • Start it earlier

The six cluster schools are: Poppleton Road, St.Barnabas, Woodthorpe, Westfield, Acomb and Applefields.

On February 27th our Hub and Cluster schools performed in our Learning and Performance network regional Shakespeare festival Responding to Richard. Each school took a section opr theme from Richard III from which they created a piece of theatre, which responded to that section of the narrative. Taking practical ensemble approaches to their pieces they created fascinating insights into how our young people respond and reflect upon this story. All schools will come back together in Spring 2015 to perform in a larger festival which will be a culmination of the three-year project.
