Bell Shakespeare presents free workshop and scholarship opportunity

Renowned national theatre company Bell Shakespeare is offering high schools students the opportunity to take part in a free workshop and the chance to audition for a fully funded scholarship.

Both the Regional Access Workshop and John Bell Scholarship (JBS) audition will take place at the Griffith Regional Theatre on Monday 26 September 2022.

The workshop is open to high school students aged 13 – 18 and will be run by a teaching artist from Bell Shakespeare who will help students to unlock Shakespeare’s language and bring it to life via dynamic drama-based strategies.

This practical and engaging 75-minute workshop covers plot, character journeys, key scenes, production design and backstage insights to enhance students’ understanding of Shakespeare’s classic play The Comedy of Errors.

Artistic Director Peter Evans states, “Our mission is to make our work available for all Australians, ensuring those who live outside capital cities don’t miss out. We are thrilled to give regional students the chance to experience Shakespeare in a practical and immersive format and encourage all students to sign up for this free workshop, and to audition for the John Bell Scholarship.”

Any full-time high school students who will be at least 16 by 31 December 2022 can audition for the John Bell Scholarship. The JBS is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a week with some of the country’s most respected actors, directors, and educators at renowned national theatre company Bell Shakespeare at their premises right on Sydney Harbour.
