Engagement with young people is key to what we do, and our extensive, participatory education programmes which run alongside each production aim to make our work as relevant and accessible as possible.
The best educational tool around… I took my students in November 2017 to see Blackeyed Theatre company’s production of ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’. The production was of a superb quality, the actors performing in such a way that the students were inspired and could not wait to write about them. In addition to this the educational tools provided FOR FREE by the company ensured that my students achieved the highest exam results they have in years. I will never use another theatre company for the live theatre analysis part of the exam again. Thank you for all your help Blackeyed theatre company, can’t wait to see you at your next show.

As well as free, high quality education packs designed for teachers and students to draw as much as possible from their theatre visits, we provide interactive workshops run by experienced theatre professionals with a passion for what they do, knowledge of the texts and energy to engage young people.
Thank you for the excellent workshop and performance. The students came away from the experience absolutely buzzing and we have already seen an improvement in their performances. Please pass on my thanks to the actors and we look forward to seeing your next production.
