Shakespeare In A Day – November 2017

About Shakespeare In A Day

To rehearse and perform a Shakespeare play in just one day is quite the challenge…This hasn’t put us off! Bexhill College Acting students, in association with St Richard’s Catholic College will be teaming up with actor Milton Lopes and local primary schools to perform Shakespeare In A Day. The work that will be performed is Shakespeare’s play¬†The Tempest.

Our students have been working hard to put their scenes together, and the local primary schools have had workshops with Milton Lopes this week. The whole project will come together when the primary schools visit the Izzard Theatre on 22nd or 23rd November to undertake a final day of workshops and rehearsals, culminating in a performance for parents at the end of the day. The event is part of a transition programme for primary schools in the Bexhill area.

Funding for the Shakespeare In A Day project was provided by the NHS Health and Equalities Grant.
