Tickets to see both Romeo and Juliet and As You Like It at Leeds Playhouse are still available through the Leeds Playhouse box office

We're delighted to be back out touring schools and colleges in West Yorkshire with our Acting and Actor Musician students, bringing Shakespeare to your learners.

This Autumn we're presenting that classic tale of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. A mainstay of many GCSE and A Level curricula. 

Romeo and Juliet is a Leeds Conservatoire production presented in partnership with Leeds Playhouse.

We're delighted to be able to offer:

  • A 90-minute version of Romeo & Juliet, performed in your school (suitable for all secondary year groups, recommended for GCSE and A Level) 
  • A 60-minute workshop on Shakespearean text before or after the performance, delivered by our graduating students (Suitable for GCSE and A Level, this workshop is not specific to any text and would benefit students studying other Shakespeare titles) 
  • A 60-minute workshop on Careers in the Performing Arts industry, We'll come back and visit you again on another day to talk about study routes and career possibilities

The performance can accommodate as many students as your venue can hold. The workshops take a maximum of 30 students.

The tour is available:

  • Monday 23 October 2023
  • Tuesday 24 October 2023
  • Wednesday 25 October 2023
  • Thursday 26 October 2023
  • Friday 27 October 2023

We will only book in one school each day and can be flexible with timings. 

Due to the nature of transporting set, equipment and cast of actors, we are limiting availability to schools in West Yorkshire.

When you submit a booking, we'll assess how feasible it is for us to get to you with time to set up ready for your suggested time slot. It may not always be possible to do so but we'll try to make it work. If you are further afield then we'd recommend an afternoon slot.

For the performance, we would require a venue such as a sports hall, auditorium or general school hall. For the workshop, a drama studio-type class room would be best.

Costs

The cost of the tour per school is £340 inclusive of VAT. For this you get all three of the activities described above.

Once a booking is submitted we will be in touch to confirm details and send a deposit payment link.

Due to a number of schools cancelling at short notice last year, we must take a deposit to secure a booking. Your booking is not confirmed until we have received this.

A deposit of £100 must be paid prior to Friday 14 July 2023. The remaining balance must be paid by Friday 29 September 2023. 

Cancellation

If you cancel the booking prior to Friday 14 July and have already paid your deposit you will receive a refund. Cancellation after Friday 14 July, the deposit will not be refunded. 

If you cancel after paying the remaining balance but before the payment deadline (Friday 29 September), we will give a partial refund, retaining the deposit. 

If you cancel after the payment deadline (Friday 29 September), we are unable to provide a refund as it is unlikely we would be able to find a suitable alternate venue at such short notice. 

DBS

All of our actors and visiting staff will hold DBS checks, we will be able to provide the numbers for these prior to our arrival. 

Technical Requirements

We'll ask about what technical capacity is available in your venue as part of the booking process, once we have these details, we will be able to confirm what we require. We'll be bringing our own lighting and sound equipment but its always useful to know what else is available and if you have any in-house tech support. 

Please complete this booking form.

A member of our team will be in touch to confirm if we are able to go ahead.

If you have any questions at all, please contact schools@lcm.ac.uk  

Fear not! 

We want as many students to be able to access our Shakespeare performances as possible. 

Our actors are performing both Romeo and Juliet and As You Like It in the Quarry Theatre at Leeds Playhouse in October.

Tickets cost £5 for students and £10 for everyone else. Tickets will be on sale soon and bookable on the Leeds Playhouse website

If you are interested in booking just the Shakespearean text workshop without the performance, get in touch via schools@lcm.ac.uk and we will be in touch with availability and prices.
