Show Information

The Sherman is excited to welcome local talent to the stage as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival. Each night four schools will perform four different Shakespeare plays.

Come and celebrate the achievements of our local schools while enjoying a wonderful evening of entertainment. You will see Shakespeare performed as you've never seen it before!

The Shakespeare Schools Festival is the UK's largest youth drama festival and enables over 1,000 primary, secondary, and special schools to stage abridged Shakespeare productions in their local professional theatre.

The running order of the schools will not be announced until the performance night. There will be four performances per night, each performed by a different cast. Each performance is up to 30 minutes long and there will be one 20 minute interval. All schools return to the stage at the end of the evening for an appraisal by a member of SSF staff.

We ask the audience to watch all performances so that every young person has a full auditorium to appreciate their hard work.
