Community projects are at the heart of the Orange Tree, offering something for all ages from 0 to 100. From our schools Shakespeare productions to weekly theatre sessions here at the OT, our work build skills, confidence and joy in performance.


Explore some of the ways we work hand in hand with schools to craft exciting, expressive, experiences for your students – from Shakespeare productions abridged for Primary, Secondary and SEN students to bespoke workshops.


Explore, create, meet new people and learn new skills through theatre. 

Led by professional directors, theatre-makers and actors who are highly experienced in working with children,  young people and adults. 

Work experience and shadowing

We offer a range of career development opportunities for those school-age and beyond. Our Work Experience weeks give you an overview of how a theatre works and an understanding of theatre jobs from Production and Technical, to Artistic, to Marketing and to Finance. Our Shadowing Placements give a more detailed understanding of specific departments. Contact for more information. 

Holiday Clubs

If you are on the lookout for a fun, creative, inspiring holiday activity, look no further than the OT. During Holiday Clubs, participants work together to devise, produce and perform an original play in a week.
