Countdown the the Launch of the RSC Playmaking Festival

We are very excited that next week is The RSC Playmaking Festival week and students at Launceston College and St Stephens are going to be part of it.! In the past, schools in the area have held a celebration of Shakespeare’s work by performing at local venues in the Summer Term however this year, because of the current climate, the festival will be online and no less exciting. Over 80 Associate Schools participated and performances from over 1500 young people are featured. For the first time ever, there will be three of Shakespeare Nation groups showcasing their performance pieces.

The website will go live at 12pm on Monday 5 July. It will be live until the end of the day on Friday 9 July. Here is the link to access the website:
