Teachers’ Evenings take place during the preview period for each Almeida production. They are an opportunity for teachers to get a first look at the show and gather further insight into the directing and production process through Q&As with members of the creative team.
These twilight sessions are designed to support the creative and professional development of Drama, Theatre Studies and English Teachers through an active exploration of key theatre practitioners, play texts and rehearsal techniques.
Led by professional theatre directors each Masterclass will give teachers the opportunity to gain new insights into current approaches to theatre-making and the application of these in Almeida productions. Teachers will develop their existing skills and knowledge and come away with a set of engaging and stimulating practical exercises to take back to their students.
Each academic year the Almeida will highlight 3 productions that afford the most potential for your students’ learning and creative development. Each of these productions will be supported by a range of engaging digital and downloadable resources enabling you and your students to explore the making of the production in greater depth.
This year’s highlighted productions are:
Oil by Ella Hickson
Mary Stuart by Friedrich Schiller in a new version created and directed by Robert Icke
Hamlet by William Shakespeare
