THE RSC will be opening its doors for a series of activities aimed at schools and young people this September during its special ‘Shakespeare Week’.
Families are also invited to the week-long Shakespeare extravaganza, during which the RSC will present eight performances of ‘The Comedy of Errors’ and ‘Hamlet.’
Apart from performing, actors will also be hosting projects for young people to get involved – including street theatre and pre- and post-show workshops on both plays performed.
Specific workshops will also be put on for young people with hearing impairments.
The Young People’s Shakespeare Week is being held as a part of the RSC’s ‘Stand up for Shakespeare’ campaign which aims to encourage young people to see live productions and ‘to do Shakespeare on their feet,’ not sitting behind desks.
The week long event will be held at the beginning of the next school term, with performances taking place from September 8 to 11.
