InterACTive Preshows

Led by Festival teaching artists appearing in the matinée, these active workshops bring students from different schools together to explore the show's key themes, questions and characters. $4 per student plus tax. (Free for participants in the Teaching Stratford Program)

InterACTive Preshows are available before selected student matinées of the following shows Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Wendy and Peter Pan, Something Rotten!, La Cages Aux Folles and The Diviners

New this year, we have added two Technical Theatre-Focused InterACTive Preshows.  Rather than exploring the play's themes and questions, these sessions focus on technical theatre and is ideal for students interested in the inner workings of theatre production and understanding the magic that happens back/offstage.
