2022. sticking w/ you
Welcome to shake & stir’s 2022 school touring season.
Over the past 18 months, our way of working has changed in ways we never anticipated. We had hoped that by the time we were introducing season 2022, things would be back to normal. Although this is far from the case, we have remained true to our pledge – that whatever the world throws at us, we will continue to adapt as necessary to continue to deliver the magic of theatre to our audiences. Our ongoing mission is to maintain our services and through this, comfort and support our community of wonderful students, teachers and friends across the country.
It has become crystal clear just how valued and important the arts are. In times of turmoil, they uplift, cocoon and motivate us. The entertain us and allow us to escape for a moment. At shake & stir, we have found a renewed interest in our modern adaptations of classics – those familiar stories – and we are proud to present many of them on stage and in the classroom in the new year.
Touring to schools in 2022 are 8 bold productions, all guaranteed to inspire.
ROMEO & JULIET, MACBETH, HAMLET, George Orwell’s 1984 and TERRORTORIAL – all proven classics, return sharper than ever. Excitingly, RUFF STUFF, RIGHT CLIQUE and Roald Dahl’s DIRTY BEASTS are heading your way – brand-new in ‘22.
Although it now seems it will be some time before life goes back to normal, we believe shake & stir is best equipped to offer you certainty moving forward. In the event that our visit cannot go ahead for whatever reason, we have SHAKE & STIR VIRTUAL online and ready to go. As technology evolves, so to do we.
More than ever, we thank you for your support throughout a difficult 2021. We noticed. Because of you, we are still here – creating and presenting live theatre under extraordinary circumstances.
But enough chat for now – we’ve got work to do.
