As a special offer to schools, there will be special student nights on two Thursday nights, July 22nd and 29th. On these nights, the cast and director will be happy to stay back after the show to answer questions from the students about the production and to share their experiences of performing the play and breathing life into Shakespeare's words.
For student groups over 10, tickets will be $10 each. In addition, a Free Double Pass will be allocated to the accompanying teacher (please mention at time of booking).
Filled with laughter, love and song, Shakespeare's genial comedy features one of the best-loved speeches in all of Shakespeare's work, "All the world's a stage..." It is particularly relevant today, being set against a background of political oppression and forced exile.
This will be a fun-filled energetic production staged at the Morningside Campus of Southbank TAFE, with a young cast of actors, singers, musicians and animals.
The play will be performed in a promenade style, with the wrestling match staged in the courtyard and the forest scenes in the adjacent Theatrette. The actors will mingle with the audience and the play will feature live music, based on the folk music of displaced peoples.
