About Castle Theatre Company
Castle Theatre Company is one of the oldest and most prestigious student Theatre Companies in Durham. We aim to offer extensive performance opportunities to students across the University. Besides productions of classical and modern plays, we hold comedy nights, poetry evenings and workshops. Recent highlights include 'Dracula' in Durham Castle's Norman Chapel and 'Hamlet' in Durham's historic town hall.
Castle Theatre Company is offering hour long workshops to accompany our touring production, targeted at children aged 9 – 14. During the workshop, we will help students explore the plot, language and characters of Love's Labour's Lost, aiding their understanding of the evening's show, and teaching some of the basics of performing Shakespeare.
