Socially Distanced Shakespeare
After the outstanding success of 2019’s Les Misérables*, Westlake Schools will combine once more for the 2021 school production: Socially Distanced Shakespeare. And so, it is time to secure your tickets!
In this time of Covid-19, the producers have created a promenade production, where audiences tour Westlake Boys, enjoying six 15-minute scenes from six very different Shakespeare plays. These plays include Loves Labours Lost, The Tempest, Romeo & Juliet, The Winter’s Tale, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado about Nothing.
This mini tour, or promenade performance, is inspired by Shakespeare’s experience of touring England in the 16th Century, during a time of plague in London and indeed around the world. As we, hopefully, emerge after the sustained period of unpleasantness (called Covid-19), our production aims to reflect Shakespeare’s lived experience, to be innovative in its staging, and to keep audiences safe, as they move from performance to performance in groups of no more than 30.
What: Socially Distanced Shakespeare
When: Tuesday, July 27 – Saturday, July 31 @ 7.30pm
