In-school Workshops & Zoom Briefings

We look forward to working with you and your ākonga to experience and unpack live performance. 

Creative Learning workshops share tools, techniques and methodologies directly from the rehearsal room into your classroom. Workshops are designed to fit within your timetable. In each workshop there will also be time for questions, discussion, and reflection. 


  • Pre-show workshop to prepare students to see the play. Post-show workshop to dig deeper into each performance. 50-minutes in duration. 
  • $100 per workshop
  • Shorter versions of our pre-show and post-show workshops can be delivered via Zoom, directly into your classroom. 
  • $55 per Zoom workshop, including a 25-minute creative workshop and 10-minute Q&A.

Chekhov’s The Seagull, a new online version by Eli Kent and Eleanor Bishop, directed by Eleanor Bishop brings a landmark piece of theatre to the 21st century, creating a new form of drama off-stage and onto Zoom.

Chekhov's The Seagull was presented in four 30 minute episodes in April 2020 as Aotearoa New Zealand was in the middle of a COVID-19 lockdown.
