Education Program

Learning is at the heart of what we do at Windmill. We strongly believe in nurturing creative literacy in young people through our Education Program.

Every year we offer schools access to a wide range of theatrical performances, supported by comprehensive study guides and unique interactive learning experiences. We also offer professional learning opportunities for educators, work placements, and free workshops and activities for children and families outside of the school program.

Book A Performance

Booking early is essential to secure your preferred day and time as shows can sell out quickly. Even if you don’t have the exact number of students, providing a close estimation will help us know how many to reserve. We can then confirm exact numbers closer to the performance and hold the tax invoice until numbers are confirmed.

Free seats equity program

Windmill’s Free Seats Equity Program offers 15% of tickets across each season free to schools in South Australia ranked 1 to 4 on the Department for Education Categories of Disadvantaged. Email us to register your interest.

Education resources

Each show is paired with a free online Study Guide containing information on the creative team, pre and post-performance activity ideas, curriculum tasks and more. Activities link to the Australian Curriculum, The Early Years Learning Framework and SACE.
