Shakespeare in Schools tour
Each year our graduating MFA Professional Acting students tour local secondary schools and colleges with fast-paced adaptations of Shakespeare’s most popular works. The school students get the opportunity to experience the excitement of watching the classics performed in close quarters, by a company of passionate young people using dynamic performance techniques.
After the performance, the school students chat to the cast, ask them questions and get to find out about life at LAMDA. It’s an informal and lively opportunity for young people to find out the ins and outs of a theatre performance too - the production and rehearsal processes.
Last year, our second year MFA Professional Acting course toured Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet to eight London secondary schools in Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea.
Shakespeare in Schools is generously supported in honour of David and Barbara Allison.
