Play On Shakespeare

Australian Shakespeare Company


I am so thankful for professional theatre educators and actors such as yourself who are willing to guide and mentor our students to enable them to develop and grow beyond what we can give them in the classroom.

Our teachers and students were enormously impressed by the standard of acting as well as the way the scenes were selected and analysed. Thank you for giving us such an entertaining performance and an analysis which was accessible without sacrificing depth
Janet Strachan, Head of Literature, Haileybury

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