A 5th Shakespearience – on its 10th Anniversary

The Shakespearience is a project which was begun 10 years ago to provide a live theatrical experience of Shakespeare’s plays – for all ages but particularly for school and college students who were 10 years and over.

Since then in 5 blocks, we have worked with the following Shakespeare plays:

Romeo and Juliet

The Merchant of Venice

Macbeth

Much Ado About Nothing

As You Like It

Henry IV Part 1

Henry IV Part II

Henry V

Hamlet

Cymbeline

King Lear

Twelfth Night

And now we are concentrating on “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

From June 10th 2019, at Ravenscourt Arts Theatre, Ravenscourt Road, Hammersmith, London W6 0UH, our team of professional actors and our Elizabethan-style musical band will be performing twice a day and all performances will be free to school and college groups.

This production will also include scenes from Hamlet, As You Like It and Cymbeline to help the audience to understand the wider world of Shakespeare. And the music of ex-Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett.
