The Australian Shakespeare Company’s theatre education program offers Australia’s most extensive and dynamic line-up of in-school workshops and incursions: now online!

A Midsummer Night's Dream Live Online
Through the performance of key scenes and discussion of narrative, our A Midsummer Night's Dream session encapsulates the whole play and its interweaving worlds of the lovers, fairies and mechanicals to give students a playful experience of the text in performance. Robust discussion throughout focuses on love and marriage, perception and imagination, magic and nature, dreams and transformation, and high and low comedy.

With the actors streamed live in full performance, the action - and learning - is all happening in the moment, leaving a lasting impression of authenticity delivered by seasoned actors. Our rich education content is presented in our usual celebrated, interactive format with analysis and discussion streaming live pre and post scenes. Students are even invited to perform alongside us in a selection of scenes!
Our Focus:
CONNECT with the characters through robust performances delivered by seasoned actors or the students themselves.
COMPREHEND the context of the play, the themes and meaning of the text using active rehearsal room techniques.
APPRECIATE the brilliance of the writing through analysis on the form, features and structure.
EXPRESS as creators when directing and performing scenes and through personal, analytical and creative writing.
INSPIRE the next generation with the timeless wisdom of classic literature and the ultimate life education it contains.

Our Incursion Program provides an explosive exploration of the works of Shakespeare. Catering to students of English and Drama, an ensemble of company actors travel through the story of the play performing pivotal scenes along the way with passionate, in depth discussions about the world of the play, historical context, characters, themes, contemporary relevance and language styles.

Delivered via Zoom, students can engage directly through their own devices at home or at school, removing barriers of time and distance. Every student has a front row seat.

This is Shakespeare for tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow…
