Experience the extraordinary talent of students from around NZ as they present their innovative and creative interpretations of the Bard’s work.
Delectable bite-size 5 and 15 minute performances will capture your imagination and bring Shakespeare to life in new and fascinating ways.

Twenty-three of Shakespeare’s plays in two days! Impossible?

Not when in the hands of forty-eight groups of students selected from throughout New Zealand, performing their selected scenes. Amidst the ever-popular A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth, Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet, the public can see are vignettes from Pericles, Titus Andronicus, Troilus and Cressida, Cymbeline, All’s Well that Ends Well and many more.
