All Saints’ Academy take on the Shakespeare Schools Festival this autumn

By Demi Wheeler (Work Experience)


Shakespeare’s School Festival is an annual festival launched in 2000 by founder Chris Grace.

The festival involves months of preparation for young people and teachers, leading up to an exhilarating performance evening in a professional theatre.

The festival aims to “engage pupils in their education, inspire teachers in their jobs and create community ties.”

This year throughout the autumn, 1,000 schools will perform in 138 theatres in the world’s largest youth drama festival.

This is the fourth time All Saints’ Academy students will take part in the festival.

In previous years they have performed: Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Merchant of Venice.

This year the students will be performing Taming of the Shrew at The Roses theatre, Tewkesbury on Monday, 7th of November 2016.

The show will begin at 7pm with a cast of 32 students and a student production team of 4.
