Educational Programme of Cervantes Theatre

 

More that 3500 students have visited our theatre in class outings. Throughout the function of La Casa de Bernarda Alba, STC organisaed workshops delivered after the performance at the Cervantes Theatre which were attended by 30 schools. 

We have also conducted six external educational workshops aimed at children between the ages of 10 and 18, which were held in conjunction with and at the headquarters of five schools (with Tonbridge School, James Allens School, St. Thomas the Apostle School, Wimbledon High School and Channing School). The workshop dealth with talks and performances focused on the works of García Lorca, the Spanish Civil War and the general learning of the Spanish language. Depending on the type of workshop, we focus on giving a more theoretical seminar or take a more participatory approach.

Cervantes Theatre’s commitment to education and teaching also materialises in our online educational platform (schools.cervantestheatre.com) focused on works that we have produced in the theatre that are also part of the A Levels. Besides, and contributing to our experience, we also teach interpretation classes for adult students (not available for students under 17 years old). In 2019 50 students partook a range of different courses.
