Teachers’ Club

The Orchard Theatre Groups’ Club


Teacher's Club 

Here at The Orchard Theatre we are passionate about arts within education as an arts mark venue and with a committed community education department we offer a number of ways we can engage your school in to our theatre.

As part of this we work with a local company, Play On, to provide individually devised workshops that can be delivered either in the theatre or at your school. We are also able to facilitate back stage tours and group rate tickets for show which include an ice cream.

You and a colleague are invited to come along to our Teachers Club taster session on THU 14 MAY, at 2PM, where you will get an opportunity to speak to all involved with teachers club, have a go at workshop activities, see the venue, meet the staff, enjoy networking over complimentary refreshments and have a Back Stage Tour. If you can’t we will be holding these more regularly!
