Education is at the heart of our program at Riverside through the productions we create in house and the whole body of work we offer to students and teachers.
Our 2014 Secondary Brochure is bursting with exciting and inspiring ways to connect professional theatre-making with the English, Drama and Theatre studies curriculum’s to provide an enjoyable way for students to gain real support for those key study areas. But theatre should also inspire a love of live performance, spark imagination and creativity and enable young people living in today’s complex society, to feel confident to express themselves, to feel empathy with other people and to develop key life skills.
At Riverside we believe the beauty of live theatre is that it allows us to discover our place in society. Why? Because all the world’s a stage.
