Education Program

Theatre opens up new worlds, opens minds and engages us in a way no other art form can. Our Education Program is one of the country’s most successful, providing more than 11,500 students and teachers annually with the opportunity to experience word class live theatre.

Our education program includes a variety of resources for students and teachers so they can get the most out of their theatrical experience:

  • Daytime performances specifically for high school students. Each play is followed by a Q&A session with the cast.
  • Teachers receive detailed study guides, providing in-depth information on key themes, dramatic style, characters and set. They also include assignment questions for continued learning back at school.
  • A variety of workshop opportunities for students and teachers throughout the year.

If you would like to book your school into a performance in our 2019 Education Program, please complete the booking form and send it to our education manager, Fiona Lukac.
