SGCNZ PPWS 2022 – Macbeth “Toil and Trouble” 

SGCNZ responded to the students’ preference to perform an hour-long version of Macbeth for Primarily Playing with Shakespeare 2022!
Braving the vagaries of Covid, the following schools and groups participated in PPWS 2022: Clifton Terrace Model School, Kelburn Normal School, Otari School, Crofton Downs Primary School, Ridgway School, Kena Kena School and WHEN.

SGCNZ engaged Alexander Sparrow as PPWS Co-Director/Mentor to help guide teachers with directing their allocated scenes.

Performed in the Concourse of the Sky Stadium on 10 November, their performance attracted an audience of nearly 300. This included a significant contingent from nearby Queen Margaret College.

Comments from participants:
“The 2022 Macbeth performance was the best and most iconic performance yet. While the Sky Stadium had a huge echo it was still an enjoyable experience.”
“It was so fun to perform for everyone and watch all the other schools perform. I also loved seeing how the other schools interpreted their bit of the play and I liked seeing all the
different costumes.”

“I really liked playing the witch part. I hope to do this again in the future.”
