TheatreOpeners

Our theatre access programme for mainstream state secondary schools offers:

  • Tickets at only £8.00 each
  • A choice of top quality theatre productions
  • Q&A sessions with members of the cast and/or production team, when available
  • The chance to participate in an Insight session prior to a show (more info below)

The programme involves around 6,500 young people a year, and teachers can choose from a broad selection of top productions.

"The value of travelling into central London, going to a West End theatre and seeing a large scale production is really important. My students come from very varied backgrounds and giving them such a cultural experience is wonderful." Teacher, The Green School

"Students for their GCSE need to see live theatre. This (Mousetrap) experience is invaluable as so many students do not attend the theatre regularly and it really does enhance their understanding of drama and theatre and improve their own craft." Teacher, Oasis Academy Coulsdon
 

Insight Sessions

Our 90-minute Insight sessions take place before some of the 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 the (students) will take lots of ideas for devising their final exam piece." Teacher, Gumley House School
