Research tells us that when children and young people approach Shakespeare's texts as actors do, the effects can be profound.

By working on their feet and speaking the words out loud, young people not only find it easier to unlock Shakespeare's language, but also see improvements in their confidence and their ability to express themselves and ideas more clearly.
