2020

IN-SCHOOLS

WELCOME TO 2020

In 2020, shake & stir turns 15! While much has changed over the years, one thing remains and that is our passion to make the very best theatre for you and your students. The syllabus is in a current state of major transition. This means that it is more important than ever for us as creators, in collaboration with you as educators, to respond and to adapt. In 2020, we have curated a school touring program of 10 productions, each available throughout the year. We are also extending the reach of our touring footprint and will go further (for longer) regionally whilst maintaining our presence in metro cities across QLD and NSW. Info on each production can be found below.

 

Bookings are now open – we look forward to celebrating with you in 2020.
