Performances for Schools     

The following is a list of performers and companies that offer performances and workshops for schools.

The number of companies offering workshops and performances for students increases each year. Although we do our best, it is impossible for the Arts Department to check each one out thoroughly. Some performances may contain themes and performance styles which could be problematic if students have not been prepared adequately, or may not be suitable for some age groups.

It is the responsibility of the school to determine whether a performance or workshop is suitable for booking for their students. Schools should look for appropriate content with a good match to the curriculum, and the availability of pre and post performance activity suggestions that will ensure students are well-prepared for and have pedagogically sound follow-up to the event.
