KINKY BOOTS is about standing up for who you are and what you believe in. It’s about BEING WHO YOU WANT TO BE and showing the world what you care about. KINKY BOOTS inspires students and teachers to share what the musical’s message means to them and how they can use their unique passions to help and inspire others.


Include a tour of the Royal Alexandra Theatre before taking your seats for the performance! Known as an "Edwardian jewel-box", this 1500-seat beaux-arts style, proscenium-stage theatre is a national landmark and the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in North America. Built in 1907, it has seen over 3000 productions since its first opening night and been the host to many special dignitaries, including the late Princess Diana. Some of the greatest actors of our time have graced its stage -- Al Jolson, Katharine Hepburn and Orson Welles to name but a few.


This in-depth guide will help you and your students get the most out of your theatre experience. Discover the true story that inspired the musical (and film); learn about the creative team and how they put the show together; gain insight into the key themes and messages of Kinky Boots (including Let Me Be Me, Unlikely Partnerships, and What Else Can I Do?). Pre- and Post-show teacher lesson plans and suggestions for further exploration are included. Download the Kinky Boots Study Guide


Nothing excites our student groups more than the opportunity to meet members of the cast & crew following the performance!

Enhance your experience at the theatre by participating in pre- or post-show workshops led by Studio 180 Theatre. Experienced Artist-Educators engage students around the show’s major themes, promoting critical thinking and inspiring empathy through productive dialogue, creative activities, and character development and improvisation. Topics explored during Kinky Boots workshops will include identity, gender, allyship, acceptance, societal expectations and the pressure to fit in. Our workshop model is flexible, offering single and multi-session options.
