Shakespeare for Schools (up to Year 8)

Although you may have heard of us and even booked one of our shows you may not know that Bitesize is Famous for its Shakespeare Productions for schools. And we are touring with an introduction to the works of William Shakespeare for Primary Schools very soon. Although the curriculum emphasis of this piece is year 5 up to year 8, but we have found from over many years of Shakespeare performances that infant children are spellbound hearing the poetry and rhythm of Shakespeare's words and so it is a worthwhile experience for the whole school.

AVAILABLE 3rd to 28th June 2013

Where There's A Will, There's A Play

An informative and entertaining, rollicking romp through Shakespearean times.
Introducing the works of
William Shakespeare in a historical context.
Cross-curriculum English/Humanities/Drama

The year is 1615 and King James is on the throne. In an enclosed Inn Yard somewhere in middle England, the 11 strong touring company of "Bishop Carey's Men" are scheduled to give a performance of William Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice". But unfortunately most of them get arrested, leaving only three; Henry, Cedric and Edmund, to entertain the gathered audience. Undeterred our intrepid heroes decide to perform extracts from Shakespeare's most popular plays; Macbeth, Dream, R&J, Tempest, &c (with a little help from the audience when required); between which we hear about their lives under the Tudors and Stuarts. After the show the audience are invited to ask questions about Shakespeare's works and times. The show lasts 1 hours including Q&A.
