EDUCATION


Take away the ceiling and walls of a theatre, and the traditionally perceived barriers seem to melt away too; the relationship between actors and audience is more direct and this creates the ideal storytelling environment for a group of young people to enjoy high quality drama.

Guidelines for Teachers

LEGALLY BLONDE

This stage musical is based on the film (which has a BBFC rating of 12). It includes moderate language and some sexual references. This is therefore more suitable for ages 12+. It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian in advance of purchase to make their own judgement as to the suitability of the show for their child. In any event, children under the age of 4 will not be admitted to the venue.

101 DALMATIANS

This new musical is suitable for family audiences. It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian in advance of purchase to make their own judgement as to the suitability of the show for their child, and more information about the production will be available as the season approaches. In any event, children under the age of 4 will not be admitted to the venue. There will be a relaxed performance of 101 Dalmatians on Sunday, 14 August at 2.15pm.

ANTIGONE

This new contemporary adaptation is most suitable for those aged 12+. It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian in advance of purchase to make their own judgement as to the suitability of the show for their child, and more information about the production will be available as the season approaches. In any event, children under the age of 4 will not be admitted to the venue.

Some FAQs

Is the theatre accessible by coach?

Yes, but you will need a free permit to access Regent’s Park which can be ordered when you make your booking. Please note that there is no coach parking in Regent’s Park.

Do I need to tell parents that the theatre is outdoors?

You should ensure that children are prepared for all weather conditions, including waterproof clothing and sun hats.

Do you have a risk assessment we can use?

Whilst we are not able to supply individual risk assessments for your visit, we can help answer your questions and even arrange a site visit if required. As you would expect, the theatre has its own risk assessments as required by health and safety regulations which are available at the theatre for the relevant enforcement bodies to inspect.
