Secondary Schools and Colleges


Reading Rep Theatre’s ENGAGE programme regularly delivers bespoke sessions in schools and colleges across Berkshire which compliment the curriculum. We also offer masterclasses, tours of the theatre and careers days. 

Secondary Schools & Colleges Participation Projects 2022/2023 –

Our Secondary School and College participation projects are an ideal experience for GCSE and A-level drama classes preparing for assessments. Students can watch a production at Reading Rep, and receive a one and a half hour bespoke workshop at either at your school/ college or in the theatre’s studio from a professional facilitator. This workshop will share insights into Reading Rep’s work and encourage pupils as theatre-makers by enabling them to practically and academically evaluate how meaning is created through live theatre. The session will use drama techniques from an award-winning theatre to create a positive experience of contemplating live performance in a physical, interactive, and engaging way.

This project supports and engages with examining boards specifications in reviewing and responding to live theatre.

The Projects: 

Jekyll and Hyde: 10th Oct – 29th Oct. 

A Christmas Carol: 30th Nov – 16th Dec.

Hedda Gabler: 22nd Feb – 11th March.
