SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL 20th – 24th Jan 2020

Following the huge success of the inaugural Shakespeare Festival in 

January 2019, dlr Mill Theatre is delighted to announce that the 2020 Shakespeare Festival will be bigger and better than ever. Our aim is to create a unique opportunity for students to experience Shakespeare as it should be experienced, on the stage. The festival framework gives teachers the opportunity to develop their chosen Shakespeare text in class through performance. With given texts and fixed timetables, the onus is placed firmly on the students’ shoulders to interact meaningfully with the project at hand but each entry will receive a workshop with an experienced Drama Facilitator to start the ball rolling. Entries are then invited to bring their own 30 minute production to perform on our stage and compete for a selection of awards including Best Production, Best Actor and Best Ensemble.
