Shakespeare. Oscar Wilde. Gilbert & Sullivan. Andrew Lloyd Weber.
From the Elizabethan era to modern times, England has been home to some of the world’s finest playwrights. Their dramatic masterworks have filled the stages of London for centuries, entertaining royalty and commoners alike. We can’t think of a better backdrop for our hand’s on London theater program. Join etr for a customized program that will have your group hollering for an encore.
Whether your students are budding playwrights, thespians, set designers or theatre critics, London offers plenty of opportunities for education and entertainment. A typical trip might include workshops with leading artists, backstage tours of the city’s finest theatres, and in-depth discussions of the history of London theatre. Of course, we’ll save time to enjoy live performances in the city’s West End theatre district, at the National Theatre, or in the Globe, a reconstruction of Shakespeare’s famed open-air playhouse. The choices are endless. We’re happy to tailor your selections to the interests and wishes of the group.
In addition to our theatre excursions, we’ll explore London - full of drama and excitement all her own. The sights and sounds of this famous city on the Thames will delight your entire group. We can help you create a customized itinerary, drawing on world-class museums, one-of-a-kind landmarks and jaw-dropping architecture. Anxious to see the Crown Jewels? Curious to know what’s on exhibit at the Tate Modern? Hoping to catch a glimpse of the royal family at Buckingham Palace? Or maybe you and your students are ready for fresh air and free time in historic Hyde Park.
With etr, anything’s possible. We’ll even add an excursion to Stratford-upon-Avon if you’d like to see Shakespeare’s home. “The world’s mine oyster,” the wise Bard wrote in The Merry Wives of Windsor. After a tour with etr, your students will feel the same way.
