Sky Blue’s Shakespeare Rewired® workshops have been performed across the country at over 300 schools to over 28,000 delighted students.

KS2 Shakespeare Rewired

Using the students' own words and ideas we retell Shakespeare's play through an interactive and highly-entertaining format that sees pupils become the stars of the show, complete with costumes to wear and props to wield - all under our expert direction. In our afternoon breakout workshops facilitators take groups of up to 30 students each through stimulating, relevant and inspirational Shakespeare workshops. Our breakout workshops are precisely tailored for students at KS2, helping to develop speaking and listening skills through drama and are a great stimulus to a unit of work.

KS3/4 Shakespeare Rewired

Our Shakespeare Rewired® workshop facilitators are all professional, classically trained actors with years of experience in both education and stage performance. Using skills they have acquired working for companies such as The Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre, The Globe and The Reduced Shakespeare Company our talented facilitators guide your students carefully through one of Shakespeare's stories.

One or two workshops may be run in a day and each workshop includes a performance of the story with student volunteers and an in depth look at key scenes with a chance for students to re-direct our actors and evaluate the outcome. There may also be a chance to hot seat characters during the 'Jeremy Vile show'.

Our breakout workshops are precisely tailored for students at KS3 or KS4 as needed, helping to develop speaking and listening skills through drama and are a great stimulus to a unit of work. These breakouts enable groups of up to 30 students to experience stimulating, relevant and inspirational Shakespeare workshops.

Looking for a little something extra?
Our KS3/4 ‘So What’s Blank Verse?’ DVD’s compliment your classroom learning. Produced exclusively for Sky Blue, inspire your students (or yourself!) without spending hours researching or planning by simply watching our DVD.

‘’The problem with Shakespeare’s verse is that it’s the easiest thing to destroy!’’

This innovative DVD from Clearly Shakespeare explains and illustrates what blank verse is, how it works and why it matters. It is packed with information to help students, actors, teachers and readers of all ages and abilities and it covers everything from the basics of rhythm and beat - through the subtleties of weak endings and enjambements - to the final engaging demonstration of why an understanding of blank verse not only enhances the effect of the poets words but can even help to expose their true meaning.
