Sophie Barrell was one of 24 students chosen to form SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company and travel to the Globe and Stratford Upon Avon for two and a half weeks in July next year.
There are thousands of students involved in this festival. 44 students were chosen from the National Final held during Queen’s Birthday weekend in Wellington. These students then took part in the SGCNZ National Shakespeare Schools Production, a week-long intensive programme of workshops, rehearsals and culminating performances which took place over the September holidays. The numbers were then whittled down to 24 so this is an amazing achievement. Congratulations Sophie!
Sophie is currently fundraising for her trip. She needs to raise $8500, not including day to day spending, by July next year. If you would like to support Sophie please click here to visit her Give a Little page.
