To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, students from eight Merseyside Schools have been chosen to take part in ‘Work Bard, Play Bard’, a collaborative project designed by the Liverpool Everyman Theatre and Globe Theatre.
We are delighted that several talented Blue Coat actors are involved in this unique opportunity which will see them take to the Everyman stage on Tuesday 12th July to perform their own twenty minute sketch, based on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice in front of a live audience.
Working with the Everyman’s Education Manager Alan Williams over the course of several months our students have worked hard to create and perfect their script and to learn their lines.
Reflecting on her involvement in the project Year 12 student Kristen remarked,
“Work Bard, Play Bard has provided a welcome release from the stress of exams and school life, allowing us to connect with a group of people we would not usually interact with whilst producing a piece of theatre we are all passionate about and proud of. The experience has been invaluable, and watching our scenes progress over time has been a process that we will never forget.”
If you would like to attend this special performance on Tuesday 12th July tickets for both the matinee and evening performances are available through the Everyman Theatre website, with matinee tickets priced at £5 for adults and £3 for children.
