Regional Access Workshops

Schools in regional areas booked in to see The Comedy of Errors at their local venue are eligible for our complimentary Regional Access Workshop program!

Bell Shakespeare’s Regional Access Workshops provide invaluable opportunities for students in regional areas to learn more about Shakespeare, live performance, and the production they are about to see, at no cost to your school.

How do they work?

Regional Access Workshops are practical 75-minute workshops which take place over the course of one day, approximately one month in advance of the performance of The Comedy of Errors at regional venues or schools.

Delivered by a Bell Shakespeare teaching artist, the workshops guide students through the play’s plot, characters, themes and key scenes, provide backstage insights into the production, share directorial decisions, and offer sneak peeks of set and costume designs from the production. The result will be a richer, more rewarding theatre experience for your students.

All schools that book tickets to see The Comedy of Errors at a participating regional venue are entitled to a Regional Access Workshop at no charge to the school.

Students do not need prior knowledge of the play to participate in the workshop.

Where do they take place?

Regional Access Workshops take place at a participating regional venue, or in schools. Contact your local presenting venue to book your workshop. You can view all venues and dates here.

Bookings and further info

For further information or for any questions regarding the workshops or bookings, please contact your local regional venue where the performances of The Comedy of Errors will be held.

Online resources

Online Resources for The Comedy of Errors can be found on the Shakespeare Hub, our online library of resources. Production resources will be added throughout the year including set and costume designs, photo galleries and interviews.

It was really great to have a free workshop with a professional who was engaging, accessible and clearly passionate about Shakespeare. It was an engaging couple of hours and the kids loved it!
