“A fascinating insight into the world of the play, and got our students fantastically engaged in its issues” Kings College, Wimbledon  

Explore and Discover

Available all year round

Bring your students to the Orange Tree Theatre to take part in our Explore workshops, and discover more about theatre and performance. Have a backstage tour, act on our stage or be introduced to a play you’re going to see.

Explore: In the round

As London’s only permanent theatre in the round we are the experts!

Take part in a 90 minute practical workshop on our stage that explores how we work in the round and the effect it has on the audience and the actors. 

Your visit will include a short introduction to the Orange Tree, a backstage tour and a practical workshop which enables students to experiment with the actor / audience relationship on our stage.

Ideal for GCSE or A Level Drama students who need to explore how to work in different configurations.

We can adapt these workshops for students of any age and change the focus depending on your needs. Whether you need to explore artists and organisations for Arts Award, think about technical theatre or theatre design or find out what it’s like to be an actor   – just speak to us at the time of booking!

90 minutes, £5 per student (minimum 8 students)

Explore: pre-show workshop

For all of our evening productions we offer pre-show workshops, which open up key themes, and explore the form and context of the play, so students get the most out of their experience of watching the performance.

Come to the theatre 2 hours before the performance for a 90 minute workshop in our rehearsal room, giving students a 30 minute break before the performance begins. 

£15 per student, including workshop and ticket for the performance (minimum 6 students)
