Takeover Programme

A bold and creative response project that engages students through an exciting and unforgettable journey of a stage adaptation from some of the best classic authors and performed by some of the most innovative companies.

Takeover for 2022 began in September with the commencing of the new school term. This year, our Creative Learning team will be heading into schools to deliver workshops that run alongside texts studied in the curriculum with a focus on Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Our workshops are delivered in schools and students respond to these workshops by creating a section of the play to be performed on the stage at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. This curriculum-led project helps to embed this topic throughout the school term whilst enabling children to learn in a number of ways about the chosen work.

For schools to book:

Our Takeover package includes:

  • Tickets to the show featured for a class of up to 30 students and 2 teaching staff. Additional tickets are available at £10.50 each.
  • 5 workshops led by Theatre Royal Drama Facilitators.
  • 2-hour CPD session.
  • Response performance to a paying audience at Theatre Royal with all tech and set provided.
