How many times can I watch the show?

What kind of shows are on the portal?
At this stage we have seven of our in-school performances available. We are currently working on a mainstage collection to become available shortly.
My school isn’t closed, but can I still use this?
If your school isn’t affected by compulsory closure and the official directives from all relevant government bodies remains business as usual, we would expect to still visit your school. Remember, while shakeandstirVIRTUAL is a fantastic substitute for a live performance, the experience of live theatre ‘in the room’ is preferred!
My student doesn’t have internet at home, what happens?
Please contact the office.
How frequent are the live Q&A sessions?
At this stage, we will be aiming for the performers to go live at least once a day to answer questions – this will increase depending on bookings.
Can I just cancel my booking?
