Notice reference #: 1H9evY

For eight days forty-six students, chosen to attend Shakespeare Globe Centre NZ’s National Shakespeare Schools Production (SGCNZ NSSP), will rehearse 40 minutes of scenes from The Comedy of Errors, The Taming of the Shrew and The Winter's Tale for half of each day under the Director of their group - Peter Hambleton, Eleanor Bishop and Robin Payne respectively. The other half of each day will be spent in Workshops, taken by renowned Tutors

The students, selected from the SGCNZ 24 Regional and National University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals 2017, will be joined by the winners of SGCNZ's allied Costume Design and Music Composition Competitions. 

The first performance on Saturday 7 October, 7.30pm will be held at Mac’s Function Centre,Te Aro Room, while the second one on Sunday 8 October, 2.00pm, will be at the Wild Theatre, Wellington Zoo.

Through continuous assessment, half of the troupe will have the exciting additional 'bonus' of being selected to form SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company 2018.

SGCNZ NSSP is a "life-changing" week, full of work, learning, personal and professional development, the formation of project groups and ever-lasting support networks. The importance of these is increasingly vital with the entrepreneurship which young people will need more than ever to create their future careers.
