Teachers’ Evenings

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.

Masterclasses for Teachers

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.
