Our first summer Yourstage Drama five day course for 2019 will be a production of Shakespeare Rocks!, performed on the outdoor stage at St Augustine’s Priory. Our older groups will be performing most of the show, and our Tots will rehearse one song and dance ready to show parents at the end of the week.
Aubrey, The Rough Shakespeare Company’s pretentious director, obtains what appears to be William Shakespeare’s lost diary. Along with Al, his down to earth assistant, the pair decide to embark on an exclusive adaption of the flamboyant Bard’s personal journal.
Ideal for outdoor performance, “Shakespeare Rocks!” is a fresh, funny and up to date look at the life and times of William Shakespeare, with a cast of hilarious historical characters and amusing glimpses into some of his works and how he came ‘To Be’.
The superb songs are exciting, modern and full of energy. They include everything you would want children to know about Shakespeare and the Elizabethan era but, are so ‘cool’ that they are not only informative, they are guaranteed to enthuse pupils, parents and teachers alike! Spread the word… Shakespeare didn’t just write… he rocked!
