Full Event Details:

The Performance
This is a project led by the BA Acting students at the University of Northampton. One of the specialisms of the course is Shakespeare, and the students study and perform in various plays by Shakespeare.

Students will create a 40 minute piece of theatre which examines themes and characters in various Shakespeare plays. Some students choose to show extracts from different plays that have been cleverly woven together for their similarities/differences. Others may choose to edit a play to create an accessible version of one play.

The Workshops
Our students will then lead a 40 minute long workshop which will help to investigate the themes of the play that they have just shown to their audience. This will be interactive and will allow your students to be up on their feet exploring Shakespeare in action. Workshops may be subject to maximum student numbers and timings can be flexible to meet your needs. Please contact the team if you wish to discuss a tailored booking.

Suitable For:

Bookings by Teachers for Key Stage 5 (Students aged 16-18)

Institution Profile:

Northampton is one of the youngest universities in the UK but we’re already leading the way in social impact. Change is the most powerful force for good in the world.

Without it, everything stays the same. Why do the same as everyone else when doing the opposite is when the exciting stuff happens?

That’s why we were one of the UK’s first ‘Changemaker Campuses’, cementing our mission to help people make changes that will transform their lives and those lives of the communities around them.

We want to break the mould of what university study can be, that’s why we built a whole new campus from the ground up designed around our students and we provide every full-time undergraduate student with their own laptop - contributing to the award of our gold status in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the highest ranking a university can receive.
