 Insight Sessions


Extend learning and enrich your theatre trip with a pre-show Insight session!

Our 90-minute Insight sessions take place before matinee performances in our TheatreOpeners programme.

Designed as participatory masterclasses, Insights offer a more in-depth exploration into the processes of creating and staging a theatre production.

"The Assistant Director really put them through their paces with exercises that have been used with the actors to develop movement sequences and characterisation in the show. It was an invaluable experience from which our students will take lots of ideas for devising their final exam piece."
Teacher, Gumley House School
