Young actors create animated film to support their local theatre

A group of young actors have created a short animated film about the RSC during the Covid-19 time of closure.

The young people aged 12 to 17 from Stratford and surrounding areas have all appeared on our stages.

They created the animated film entirely independently with no RSC involvement. It follows a range of Shakespeare’s work featuring child characters, as they explain the difficulties that theatres like the RSC are facing in the current crisis.

The film was directed by young actor Luca Saraceni-Gunner and animated by Alfie Jordan.
