Telford - Step up with Shakespeare

Step Up Students

Step up with Shakespeare was a year long project encouraging looked after children from Telford to actively engage with Shakespeare by participating in workshops, acting in performances, and attending live Shakespeare plays.

During the year, these young people accomplished an impressive amount. They:

  • attended a live performance event with four of the current RSC ensemble in Wellington
  • spent six sessions actively exploring Romeo and Juliet. nine sessions actively exploring Macbeth, and seven sessions actively exploring The Tempest
  • worked with our Enterprise Department to design a badge that is now sold in the RSC shop
  • collaborated with our graphics and marketing departments to create logos, flyesr, and programmes
  • acted alongside RSC ensemble actors in two workshops in Stratford-upon-Avon
  • directed and acted short scenes in The Courtyard Theatre
  • saw Romeo and Juliet, and Comedy of Errors YPS at the Royal Shakespeare Company
  • saw Macbeth on a trip to London
  • worked with a professional photographer to explore creating images based on Shakespeare text
  • and performed monologues from The Tempest in the Swan Theatre as part of the re-opening period
