You are cordially invited to a free performance of either Macbeth or The Tempest, presented by The Birmingham Theatre School in association with Joseph Chamberlain College. This production has been created as part of the Rep Festival week and has been extended to include performances specifically targeted to school students studying English or Drama for their GSCE. This is a unique chance to see a live production of Macbeth or The Tempest, which is so often an integral part of school students English GCSE study.

The Tempest and Macbeth are both performed in conjunction with our BTEC Performing Arts courses and Professional Part Time Diploma Course. Each performance lasts approximately 2 hour & 10 minutes (inclusive of an interval). Followed by a Q&A of approximately 20 minutes.

The school has been training actors for more than 75 years and its professional touring company has been visiting schools for more than 15 years.
