Eastwood Park Theatre has programmed a range of performances exclusively for schools
ERCL has put together a fantastic programme of shows exclusively for school's audiences this spring. With something for all age groups, Eastwood Park Theatre becomes the central point for bringing a range of performances that support the curriculum, pupil's learning and develops their imagination through providing the experience of seeing drama, comedy, Shakespeare, fairytales and fables live on stage.
Highlights this season include four performances of Shakespeare from the gender-blind Merely Theatre. Each actor in the company is twinned by another actor of the opposite gender, and they rehearse their parts together. The result is men and women playing every role in any and all potential combinations, creating five-hand Shakespeare plays with immense energy, pace and clarity. In February, they bring 'Romeo & Juliet' and 'Twelfth Night' to Eastwood Park Theatre for both matinee and evening performances.
BBC star Dommy B makes a return to Eastwood Park Theatre stage with the classic tale 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'.
"From the moment he [Dommy B] started to speak we were totally captivated - the incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery made him irresistible." City Life Magazine
And younger pupils don't miss out either - 'Little Red Riding Hood and Friends' is a fine introduction to theatre that presents a variety of fairytales to captivate children from start to finish.
