SRT is committed to offering the highest quality productions with an exciting and inspiring season targeting different audience groups from musical lovers to audiences with an interest in thought provoking plays. In recent years we have invested in building a solid platform and partnership with the educational sector, as we believe theatre has the power to educate and engage our youth to create creative thinkers and inspired citizens. SRT's productions aim to be a solid element of language and literature education.
Here are the different educational platforms that SRT has to offer:
SRT's The Young Co.
A two year acting training programme for 16-25 year-olds. Every year we see graduating students enter our industry and choose theatre as their path in life.
SRT's The Little Company
We reach over 40,000 young people with theatre that has an educational message. From issues like sibling rivalry, to respecting differences to issues of the environment each play comes with a free teacher's ressource to further enhance the key messaging in the classroom before or after the theatre visit.
Complimentary Teacher's Pack and Outreach Activities
Most of SRT's productions for adults and students in the secondary and tertiary educational institutions are provided with a Teacher's Pack and visits to the schools by our education team. In the coming year, we are planning to invest in a stronger platform in this area, and will include elements of training opportunities for teachers.
Launched in 2011 with programmes for students as well as the acting community.
All programmes will be announced on our website, in the SRT newsletter and on NAC's portal.
