Studying Shakespeare Suckeths

The Helpmann Award-nominated show that audiences (of all ages) across the country adored is back and Barder than ever…

Is Shakespeare still relevant? It’s the first rehearsal for the year 12s Performance Task and Lachlan and Nerys know that with their knowledge of The Bard they cannot fail. Their allocated group members Jay and Rob don’t know the difference between Shakespeare and Schwarzenegger. As this mismatched foursome battle it out on the drama room floor they surprise and shock themselves as they gain greater understanding of Shakespeare’s most famous plays including Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Titus Andronicus, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, The Taming of the Shrew and Hamlet.

Whether you’re a student, a drama teacher or a general theatregoer, the quality of Statespeare is remarkable. XS Entertainment

This show proves that Shakespeare is relevant for today’s students, and anyone who cares to enjoy a good show. If this were a Senior Drama Performance Task it would easily receive an A+. XS Entertainment
