SF 12 - Twisted Shakespeare is go!

After much anticipation, planning and general waiting for July to come around, Summer Festival 2012 'Twisted Shakespeare' is finally upon us.

On Thursday of last week, participants on the six week Performance and Production Learning Programme, began a series of master classes. Today they were joined by participants of the five week Performance and Production Course - signifying that rehearsals are already under way and that the countdown to opening night! The three week Intermediate Course participants will began rehearsals on Monday 16th July.

As ever, SF aims to CREATE wonderful theatre, enable participants to not only IMAGINE but realise exactly what it is they are capable of and INSPIRE absolutely everyone involved: audiences, staff and participants alike. This year's strong programme is set to do all of the above and more.

  • Twelfth Night: Tron Theatre Glasgow, directed by Mary McCluskey
  • A Midsummer Night's Dream: Royal Botanic Gardens, directed by Fraser MacLeod. Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
  • An Eye For An Eye: a new devised production inspired by Titus Andronicus, directed by Lisa Gregan 

In addition to rehearsing for and appearing in the main house productions, Twisted Shakespeare will incorporate a series of master classes and skills workshops, a very special performance from SYT Productions of 'The Weegie Board - A West Of Scotland Ghost Story' (just back from a London tour) and A Midsummer Night's Ball themed social event.
