What our customers say about us
Libby Tilley, Head of Arts and Humanities Libraries and English Faculty Librarian, University of Cambridge, UK
We chose DT+ to provide access to theatre productions for our students. The additional information offered through study guides and interviews is a bonus for those doing Performance or Shakespeare courses. The difference screening live performances makes is enormous, and it is worth the investment to get this level of quality.
Jeremy Franklin, Director of Music/Theatre, Colorado Mesa University, US
DT+ has allowed us to bring a myriad of productions and artists directly to our students. Having DT+ available helps our students develop as well-rounded artists, expands their world-view, making them all the more employable after graduation.
Jim Pedrech, English Department Head, Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School, Canada
We replaced a text in one of our courses with All My Sons due to the strength of the performance available through DT+. We believe that the activities we have built around this remarkable adaptation effectively prepare our students for post-secondary education.
Gadi Shai Burman, Drama & English Teacher, Shenzhen College of International Education, Shenzhen, China
Digital Theatre+ has become an invaluable resource in supporting not only the delivery of Drama within the school, but also the provision of accessible staged versions of plays relevant to our school’s English curriculum. The supplementary learning materials, such as the study guides and biographies of various playwrights/practitioners have also become a trusted research source for student coursework and assessment. The overall reaction to Digital Theatre Plus has been incredibly positive and there are plans to incorporate it directly into our syllabus delivery next year.
Don Landrigan, Theatre Teacher, Linden Hall School, Japan
Given where we are – regional Japan – opportunities to see theatre are limited and DT+ provides quality. I'd have a hard time completing my course without DT+. Joining is the best advice I've been given since I started teaching IB DP Theatre.
Missey Head, Fine Arts Coordinator, Lewisville Independent School District
The theatre teachers and students in Lewisville Independent School District feel blessed to have the resources Digital Theatre+ provides. The content and curriculum provides opportunities for our students to develop their skills in critical, logical, reflective, metacognitive, and creative thinking. We cannot thank Digital Theatre+ enough for the valuable experiences our students are enjoying.
Kevin Wallace, Head of Department (Acting), Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology, Republic of Ireland
DT+ is a great learning aid and teaching tool. It provides the students with an in-depth view of performances of essential theatrical texts. I use it to teach English Literature students and it is a crucial tool to show them that a performance text is radically different from a written text.
Daniel Hawthorne, Lecturer in Creative Arts, Bridgwater College, UK
DT+ has been highly effective both in classroom interactivity and assisting effective planning. The resources available for teacher and student are specific and concise from highly respected sources. I have saved 3-5 hours of planning a week through use of DT+.
Our content is mapped to English and Drama curricula, and commissioned and curated with a view to assisting educators and students in their understanding of core texts, characterisation, and the many and diverse facets of performance.
We collaborate with over 50 leading theatre companies, educational organisations and arts collectives around the world.
