    EXPLORE OUR PRODUCTIONS

    Explore Workshops are offered alongside our major in-house productions and set texts.

For older students and upon request, an Explore workshop can be specifically designed to stimulate a critical response to the play and support written assessment of the Drama curriculum units of experiencing live performance.
