Medieval Education & Entertainment
15 Years of educational excellence
Blackthorn Productions is a Guelph based company that specializes in medieval education and entertainment. Our purpose is to dispel common misconceptions about the middle ages. We endeavour to do this through the use of “living history presentations.” Our programs include festivals, live theatre, educational programs, workshops and customized presentations. Blackthorn Productions provides a complete, fun filled family oriented experience. Blackthorn has been educating and entertaining young and old for 13 years and has been expanding it’s horizons to include theatre and film projects as well as Stage Combat workshops for the public, theatre companies and high school drama classes
services we offer
Blackthorn Productions brings the medieval era to your classrooms and offers your students a chance for a kinaesthetic, interactive experience. Check out our array of set presentations or let us help you customize your own event.
If you have ever wanted to sample some aspects of the middle ages our workshops can help you find your way. Whether it making chain-maille or creating you own coat of arms there is something for you. All workshops can be done one on one or in groups.
STAGE COMBAT WORKSHOPS
Stage combat is the illusion of violence. Just as a magician uses slight hand and misdirection to make an audience believe what they are seeing is real, we use similar techniques to make violence believable and safe. These workshops can be done for High School Drama or for private groups and individuals
