Theatre in Education
Vital Stages produces touring shows for both primary and secondary education. On a number of occasions the company has responded to special commissions for touring shows, most notably the NSPCC, which funded a five-year touring project, called Before the City, for London schools on the theme of Racial Bullying.
Vital Stages have also worked closely with the police and victim support service on producing a touring production on the theme of parenting. This production, called Let’s Keep Talking, toured London secondary schools for three years.
Vital stages also produces work directly related to the curriculum either choosing to tour a set text such as Macbeth or Romeo and Juliet for secondary schools, or shows such as Theseus and the Minotaur, designed and written for primary schools.
As with all Vital Stages, shows we believe that every production should stand in its own right as a good piece of theatre that is both entertaining and stimulating as well as being educational.
