We are committed to engaging children and young people with our work and work extensively with local schools, colleges and universities to deliver exciting and innovative projects to aid learning.
There are a number of ways for you and your students to get involved.
Tours and talks
We are able to offer tours of our theatre at Gala Durham as well as talks with members of staff. Each of our productions include talk back sessions with the cast and director where students can ask questions about the show they’ve seen, subjects raised and about working in theatre.
Seeing a show?
Are you planning a visit to the theatre and need some extra support? Perhaps you’d like to enrich your experience with a post-show discussion with the cast or meet some of our Gala Durham team? Get in touch and we’ll help make your great visit exceptional.
We work with a wide range of practitioners, covering a wide range of topics from stage combat to Shakespeare and costume design to musical theatre. We can work with various group sizes – no group is too big or too small – and are able to provide workshops at our theatre or we can come to your school during both school hours and after school clubs.
