SGCNZ National Shakespeare Schools Production 2018
With New Zealand celebrating its 125th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage Movement achieving the vote, it seems appropriate for the students at Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand National Shakespeare Schools Production (SGCNZ NSSP) 2018 to be focusing on three of his plays containing very strong females.
Scenes from Love’s Labour’s Lost, The Taming of the Shrew and Antony & Cleopatra will be directed by Jonathon Hendry, Kim Morgan and Colin Spicer respectively and performed at the University of Otago’s College of Education Hall on Friday 5 October at 6.30pm and Saturday 6 October at 7.30pm.
The 46 students, chosen from the 24 Regional and National SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals, will spend half of each day doing workshops with high calibre tutors and the other half rehearsing – starting from being cast on their full day, to performing 40 minutes from each play for the public just 5 days later! They will be joined by the Winners of SGCNZ Costume Design Competition and Music Composition Competition as Student Costumier and Composer.
