About

A popular show designed to support KS4 and KS5 students studying drama and English literature. Experience Macbeth as it was supposed to be, not on the page but the stage!

Set in the 11th century, a warworn Macbeth is told by three sisters that he is fated to become King of Scotland. So begins a series of events that lead to the destruction of Kings, friends, and souls as Macbeth, and his Lady, try to cling to the tainted crown.

Enjoy Shakespeare's classic tale as portrayed by William Shakespeare with sorcery, ghostly apparitions and spectacular sword fights!

Allow students to interact with the cast to increase the depth of their knowledge and amplify appreciation for alternative perspectives with an included question and answer session.

Why not share the experience with another school?

 

We aim to balance the welfare of our performers with the economic pressures schools face. If you team up with another local school, we will split the cost of the shows evenly. Each school gets a competitive price whilst ensuring our team is appropriately cared for.

 

We have two clauses to be aware of in this scenario:

  1. The shows must take place on the same day. For example, on 25th June a performance will take place in the morning at School A. Then, a show will take place in the afternoon at School B.

  2. Each school needs to be within 5 miles of each other. Should the distance be greater than 5 miles, we will consider the situation and decide on a case-by-case basis.

 

This would cost each school £2124 plus VAT for one show. A saving of £1274 plus VAT compared to ordering a single performance independently. 

 

How is that possible? We can make transport and accommodation efficiencies by having the shows take place on the same day. There is a negligible difference between the cost of having two shows at one school on the same day and one show at two schools on the same day (as long as the schools are not too far apart). We create a cost-efficiency that benefits all parties. 

 

No doubt you have questions. We are here to help. We are also here to support and facilitate the arrangement between us. Reach out to discuss your ideas, and let's work together. Together everyone achieves more.
