The Shakespeare Show
Digital Format Available
- OUTLINE -
NEW! DIGITAL FORMAT AVAILABLE TO SCHOOLS___________________________________________Professional poets and actors present short dramatised excerpts from the Bard’s works. They also perform original poems that are inspired by plays such as Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, Julius Caesar and As You like it. Our artists will deploy current ‘pop forms’ of literature and interactive theatre to present rhythm, poetry and themes in Shakespeare’s original works. The programme can be customised to meet the desired outcome of an institution.
