One of our key aims is to offer comprehensive support for school groups. Encouraging young people to see these plays, in this space, is at the heart of our planning and we want to make this as accessible and affordable as possible. We advise ages 10+ for the performances but this is at the discretion of the school.
We are also establishing The Rose Bursary Scheme whereby schools can apply for an allocation of free tickets for Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre. (*criteria apply, please contact our office for further details).
The two options we have for school bookings are:
Option 1 – School Specific Performances
Nine performances have been scheduled specifically for schools, enabling us to offer better seats at a better price
