Wake Up To Shakespeare Drama Classes

‘Wake Up To Shakespeare’ is a fantastic programme of practical approaches to Shakespeare for Primary Schools, aimed at introducing acting technique to the younger student and improving speaking and listening skills.

​In a fun, fast paced session, we utilise improvisation techniques to re-enact scenes from the plays and introduce children to the techniques required to develop characters, themes and storylines. This can be linked to any literature and themes the children are studying which will help to give insight into prose, poetry and scripted work.

The workshops also support the National Curriculum requirements for Drama and English by giving children the chance to create roles and convey story, themes and emotions. Opportunities for performance then enable evaluation and discussion of the dramatic techniques used throughout the session. These workshops are available to all Primary Schools in the North West and give the children an insight and understanding of Shakespeare’s plays. The benefits for your students are fantastic!
