On Friday we were delighted to film our University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Competition entries for 2020.

A massive congratulations to our entries for the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare. These teams worked extremely hard to keep their rehearsals and preparations going through lockdown. We are very proud of everything they have achieved and now await the results to see if the groups will progress to the national competition is Wellington

Ellen Redfearn directed a more serious scene from one of Shakespeare's tragedies Macbeth. Andrew Wilson and Summer Paulin as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
