Calliope Theatre Company presents professional English-language theatre both for in-school and theatre performances. 

Created by professionally trained, native English speaking artists, Matthew Lloyd, Stori Maree and Meg Thurin, Calliope Theatre Company takes great pride in the high-quality of its productions. Every show that we present features professional actors, lavish costumes, hand painted scenery and lights & sound. Calliope Theatre Company tours English-language plays across Portugal and Spain with three shows carefully designed by educators to enhance students’ education of the English language and to introduce them to the joys of live theatre. 

We are very excited about our new shows.  For younger students, we will present our retelling of the beloved fairy-tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, full of exciting characters, old and new! For students aged 10 to 14, join us on the high seas for a pirate adventure in The Lost Treasure of Tortuga. For older students, we present our adaptation of Shakespeare’s 'Scottish' play, Macbeth, as you’ve never seen it before!

A positive educational experience, as the students had the opportunity to previously prepare the vocabulary of the play they were about to watch. The interaction you were able to have with the students is also a wonderful way for them to use English in a meaningful context. Some of my students who have more difficulties and struggle at this subject, were not so eager to watch the play (namely two sixth-graders and three eighth-graders). However, in the end they came to me and confessed they had understood the whole play, while they smiled and showed their satisfaction for this small success (and huge step in accepting a victory at English).
