Back to skool with S4K

Schools are back for the new academic year and S4K are gearing up for a busy season.

tempest-poster-small.jpgBox offices in the UK will soon be open for S4K’s The Tempest which tours from January – March 2013. The brand new production opens at the Ashcroft Theatre in Croydon, South London on Tuesday 15 January and then plays the Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells (16); The Hawth, Crawley (17); Theatre Royal & Opera House, Wakefield (21), Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton (22) and The Lowry, Salford (23) before a four-week February Middle East Tour, returning to the UK for further dates until 22 March. Full touring dates and performances can be found here, tickets will be on sale in theatre Box Office during September and full casting will be announced in October. The show is produced by Julian Chenery and Carolyn Chenery in association with S4K International and S4K Entertainment.

S4K International are also co-producing an autumn tour of The Little Mermaid in the UAE with ME ArtsLink that features two S4K regulars Ben Goodridge and Emma Louise Bennett, both of whom appeared in the 2012 tour of S4K’s Romeo & Juliet.

Many schools choose to perform an S4K show for the school play at Christmas and we’re delighted to announce that “Put on a Play Pack” prices have been held at last year’s level. Details of all our shows that can be performed by schools can be found here.

Prices are unchanged too for Workshops from S4K Education. The Tempest workshops that complement a visit to the S4K Theatre Company touring production are proving popular. If you are looking for a misture between a workshop and a full-on school production, Day Dream and Mini Macbeth - our put a show on in a day workshops may be the ideal choice for your school. Details of our Education programme can be found here.

What they say about us:

S4K HAMLET: "I have seen many Hamlets over the years: among others, David Warner in 1965, Richard Chamberlain (anyone old enough to remember 'Doctor Kildare?), Alan Bates, Roger Reece, Julian Glover, Michael Mahoney, Mark Rylance, Derek Jacobi and Kenneth Branagh (As you can imagine, there have been some fine Gertrudes, Poloniuses - or should it be 'Polonii'? - and Ophelias as well); and I have taught the play to A-level and degree level. To be honest, I went along today with some apprehension. I am delighted to say that my misgivings were groundless - I was as enthralled as the children. My sincere thanks and congratulations to you all."
