Along with us here at FRED Theatre HQ, I hope you’re enjoying the summer break.
I realise not all work stops though, and thought now would be a good time to remind you we are currently accepting enquiries for our in-schools productions for 2017-18.
JUST ADDED: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
In response to a number of requests, we’ve added Shakespeare’s much loved comedy to our programme of in-school shows for the new academic year.
In common with our other productions, Much Ado will run at approximately 90 minutes, using an edited version of Shakespeare’s play. A bright, bold and colourful production, this will be just right for the summer term. You might even want to think about an outdoor performance (space and weather permitting).
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
First up though, in the autumn term, we are touring a fresh adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story.
A professional cast of six actors will faithfully present this much loved story in an innovative and low-tech setting. All you need supply is a space and an audience.
It’s an excellent introduction to the novella for students, or a timely refresher, that ensures all the key themes (including responsibility, poverty, education, change) are included giving classes plenty to discuss post-performance.
A Christmas Carol can be performed in-school at a time to suit your schedule, and is available for bookings throughout October, November and December 2017. The show runs at 90 minutes and is suitable for all ages, especially those studying the text.
SPRING 2018: MACBETH and ROMEO AND JULIET
After Christmas we are back in schools with 90 minute versions of two of Shakespeare’s classic tragedies.
Macbeth toured in early 2017 and was very well received. We’re delighted to bring back that production for a second tour along with a new production of Romeo and Juliet.
