"You have a swimming carnival and an athletics carnival - let's have a SHAKESPEARE CARNIVAL!"
Sport for Jove Theatre is returning with The Shakespeare Carnival, for 2018. Right across NSW, high school students will have the chance to tread the boards and creatively engage with Shakespeare's works on the stage as actors, dancers, musicians and designers.
Artistic, Academic and Personal Development
Your students can develop their own pieces in a range of categories and perform at School, Regional and State levels, gaining unparalleled insights into, and experience of, these great plays and developing skills and abilities that are artistic, academic and personal.
