Education

Let us help you to introduce your students to theatre: whatever their age, we would like to enrich their experience

The majority of our productions are entirely put together by students and young people, making it one of the most inspiring venues in the area to bring your students to. Our productions can be used to introduce students to theatre, deepen their understanding of drama or simply entertain.

Our productions are often of direct relevance to the National Curriculum; others can be used as starting points for discussion, research or as the basis for devised drama work. We offer special school discounts for groups of nine or more. In addition, you can extend your visit to our Theatre by attending a talk, theatre workshop or by having a backstage tour.

For further information or to reserve seats, call the Box Office on 01223 300085. Please advise the Box Office of any access requirements.

What we offer

Ever want to talk about the performance you're coming to see and find out more about the process of bringing it together?

We offer a range of talks and events to complement and enhance your students' enjoyment of our season.

We are happy to hold pre/post-show discussions with members of the creative team and acting company of our shows to give you a chance to ask the team your questions about the show.

Our discussions are an informal way of finding out a bit more about the production, the creative process behind it and the experience of putting together a show at the ADC Theatre.

If you're interested in requesting a talk, please email education@adctheatre.com, or call 01223 359537 to discuss your requirements.

Ever wanted to find out what goes on behind the scene at the ADC Theatre?
