Workshops for Schools

Curve is continually looking for ways to engage children and young people and their teachers with a range of cultural opportunities and experiences. There are lots of ways that schools can get involved with Curve:

We work with schools to offer a range of projects and tailor-made practical workshops linked to our Curve produced shows or delivered by visiting theatre companies, which can take place both here at Curve or in your school.

Our workshops are designed to open up the world of theatre – to get behind what’s on stage, and to reveal the hidden process of a rehearsal room. Our workshops offer an opportunity to engage more deeply with the artists, subject matter, and theatrical processes in our artistic programme.

Read more in our dedicated Experience Curve schools’ brochure below.

To enquire about our current educational workshops and how they can be tailored to your school, email experiencecurve@curvetheatre.co.uk

“We thought it was amazing! The children loved it, and the parents gave us universally positive feedback too.” Katy Wheatley, St. Peter’s R.C. Primary School

Behind the Scenes Workshops

We offer a number of behind the scenes workshops throughout the year. These workshops are run in partnership with Leicestershire Education Business Company.

Behind the Scenes workshops give students the opportunity to meet and work alongside the creative and technical teams at Curve. Students will develop skills in design, technical theatre, marketing and casting.

Costing £30 per person, these workshops include a full tour of the building and a ticket to see a matinee performance.

For more information and to book your place, please contact Danielle Wright at Leicestershire Education Business Company on 0116 240 7000 or e-mail danielle.wright@leics-ebc.org.uk

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for organising our trip and giving the students such a brilliant day – it was a very big deal for them to come out to Curve, see the show and have the tour, and they thoroughly enjoyed it.”  Ellen Bianchini, Children’s Hospital School

Workshops for Teachers

We offer workshops for teachers that are available when you book tickets for your school group to selected productions. As well as giving an insight into the making of the show, these workshops will provide useful exercises and ideas for your students. 

“Curve is genuinely passionate about opening up theatre to young people. Added to this is their encouragement of us, as teachers, and their drive to involve us in workshops and training, sharing best practice and canvassing our opinions about ways in which Curve can support us.” Ellie Dickinson, Guthlaxton College

I love coming to Curve to participate in the Drama Teachers’ Network meetings and I have brought my students for behind the scenes days and workshops, which they have really enjoyed.”
