"(I have) totally renewed vigour and positive energy towards teaching drama."
"(my) knowledge of drama techniques had increased and I'm already full of ideas for next year's project."
"A phenomenal experience. The children were totally engaged in their learning and hearing my children speak with clarity made me feel so proud – some children you would never dream of hearing especially in front of an audience"
"there was a real feeling of support and respect between the children from different schools"
"if you need a new subject, just choose Shakespeare"
"thank you for a valuable experience which I’m sure all our Year 6 pupils will remember as a highlight of their final year at Primary School"
"I know of no other project on this scale that proceeds so smoothly"
"I felt well supported and cared for"
Shakespeare - As YOU Like It celebrates Shakespeare through drama in primary schools, bringing the Bard to life through research,
improvisation and professionally led workshops, and culminating in a performance on the stage of the Courtyard Theatre at the Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.
All as part of the mainstream work in English & Literacy for Years 5/6 during the autumn term.
It started in 2000, but since 2010, the project has been organised by Troublemaker Theatre Company, in association with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
