During our final preparations for the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare festival, the Much Ado About Nothing team were delighted to be visited by Jessica Latton.
Jessica is an outstanding performer, and is an expert at all things Shakespeare. After introductions, Jessica showed Lexie Tomlinson (our student director), Imogen Sullivan (Beatrice) and Te Kahui Mariu-Boreham (Benedict) the first folio and completed lots of activities to help the troupe understand their characters more personally. Jessica challenged the students to examine their characters closely and think carefully about the text. We are extremely grateful for Jessica for giving up her time to work with use. Thank you Jessica!
Good luck to Kate Kelly, Troy Kubala, Amalie Latton, Ellen Redfearn, Ted Kerr-Bell, Enrique Garcia, Lexie Tomlinson, Imogen Sullivan, Te Kahui Mariu-Boreham as they travel to Invercargill for the competition next week!
