ESU Performing Shakespeare Competition - 2017 National Final
Tue 21 March 2017, 12:30 – 16:30 GMT
Join us on the 21st March 2017 to see young people aged 11-14 from different regions of the UK give a performance of their chosen speech from one of Shakespeare's plays, on a West End stage! The Performing Shakespeare Competition is designed to allow Key Stage 3 pupils the opportunity to experience Shakespeare's plays as they were intended - on the stage. Using theatre and performance skills to engage with the texts, our performers bring to life some of the world's most famous speeches in their own unique interpretations. This is definitely an event not to be missed!
The event will be held at The Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, in London's famous West End. We will begin at 1 pm sharp, with guests being able to enter the auditorium from 12:30 pm and the event will conclude by 4:30 pm at the latest. Please note that photography will not be allowed inside the auditorium, but a photographer will be in attendance and photographs will be made available after the event.
We are pleased to be able to offer tickets for this event free of charge and there will be an opportunity to make an optional donation to our charitable activities on the day.
