We are committed to expanding our engagement with schools, youth theatres, students, artists and communities. We have three workshops to choose from, and if you would prefer something bespoke to meet your needs or syllabus – we can do that for you too. 

Some of the people we have worked with to deliver these workshops include: Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Young Vic, Bush Theatre, Derby Theatre, Winchester University, Wildern Secondary School, Eastleigh Teachers Group, National Association of Youth Theatre and York Theatre Royal.

Drag King DIY

Ever wanted to try your hand at becoming a drag king? Led by director Lucy J Skilbeck and Drag King Lucy Jane Parkinson aka LoUis CYfer, this playful workshop leads you through the basics of creating your very own male persona – complete with make-up, costume and (optional) swagger…

“I’ve learnt so much. I’ve never done cabaret/drag before, it was awesome!”

Participant, The BlueRoom Theatre, Perth

Gender Utopia

So we live in a post-gender world, right? What might a post-gender utopia even look like? A world free from pinks and blues? If we didn’t have gender, how would his and hers happy meals work? Or toilets? Or onesies? When did you come out as straight? Who says that’s anyone’s business?!

Ladies, gentlemen and everyone beyond the binary, join Milk Presents in a practical workshop for the curious, and spend an hour – or two – in a meeting of minds that will solve the world’s big questions. Or at least start asking big questions of the world…

A practical, theatre based discussion and devising workshop looking at what gender means today.

Suitable for: schools, colleges, youth theatres, and anyone aged 12+

“I learned so much about ‘gender’, it opened my mind”

Young participant, Bush Theatre Residency

Queer Performance and Devising

How can you define queer? How can you queer a space, an object or a body? Using devising techniques, theory and discussion, this practical workshop will explore the theories and techniques that underpin Milk Presents’ unique performance practice.

Suitable for: 16+ / Higher Education

“Milk Presents contributed to RCSSD’s flagship MA in Advanced Theatre Practice and made a great impact not just in terms of contemporary political performance, but also in terms of teaching and teasing out theatre and performance making skills. Milk Presents made a vital contribution to advanced level practice and will continue to do so”.
