THE BASE TIKES
Putting some 'X-Factor'
into the Bard
and workshops in the West Midlands
Check out our Facebook
page. There will be a website very soon.
The Base Tikes are a
company of young Birmingham actors aged between 18 and 25, and the
look and vibe is a little like One Direction, only with some girls in
the band! This creates a strong connection with young people, some
of whom are becoming 'fans' already. We believe Shakespeare is the
coolest thing ever. At the same time, our casts have been fully
trained in handling verse and have created energetic, powerful and
truthful productions of an initial set of plays. The company is
led by an actor, director and former English, Drama and Media teacher
that was Head of GCSE in a Birmingham college, and also worked in a
large secondary school. The Base Tikes are all extremely fluent in
the content and requirements of curricula in English and Drama. This
means that we have an outstanding offering to schools that buy in
Shakespeare productions and workshops.
The Tikes will have
completed an outdoor tour of Hamlet and The Tempest come September,
and will want to share their productions, knowledge and skills with
young people in schools. We are a community interest and training
company, so our rates are based on the simple model of each of 7
actors earning a modest fee for each day or half-day. It is a small
company with a big offering.
PM me or look us up on
Facebook if you want details of the Base Tikes' schools offering.
