Meet The Cast - Engaging Kids and Adults with History
Cast and characters bring history to life at museum
shows, and tours in role. The museum now offers a totally interactive experience. Visitors to the museum will be able to meet the people who shaped Tudor history as well as meeting some of Shakespeare's most loved characters. Staff have been trained on historical knowledge and character background allowing them interact with visitors in a totally convincing and accurately informative fashion. If the museum is a an exciting giant
interactive text book the, Falstaff cast are the dynamic teachers ready make history relevant.
Falstaff Experience Creative Director Janet Ford said: " It is an exciting new phase in the museums development. The days of a museum being interactive because there is a button to push are over. Visitors want new experiences that they will remember for a life time. By providing visitors with the opportunity to meet famous Tudor's and Shakespeare's characters we are giving them a memory to last a life time. A big part of our remit is
education and it is our belief that by meeting the the actual people from history will inspire children in their learning. The possibilities are endless and we may look at taking the characters online in the future." The list of characters can be found at http://falstaffexperience.co.uk/
