Shakespeare for Schools

To quote Shakespeare "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players" and it was certainly the case when drama students from the Island's high schools attended an acting workshop with members of the National Youth Theatre.

The workshop was organised in conjunction with the Shakespeare for Schools Festival, the largest youth drama event in the UK.

The Festival sees young people acting in 30 minute versions of classic plays including The Tempest, Othello and The Winter's Tale.

Kathleen Corr of the Shakespeare for Schools Charity says it is a great opportunity for budding actors.

The young people who attende the workshop will be showing their skills at the Gaiety Theatre on Saturday October 17.
