Royal Shakespeare Theatre prepares to celebrate differences

DIFFERENCES will be celebrated at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre ahead of the upcoming musical The Boy in the Dress.

Families are invited to join a host of free football, fashion and fun themed activities at the theatre during half-term.

The fun kicks off with a day of football and fashion across the Swan and Bancroft gardens on Saturday October 26. Stratford Town Colts FC will be playing matches, while freestyle footballer Rebaz Mohammed will be showing off his skills and holding a workshop.

Visitors can also join a human foosball game, play table football, or pick a dress to play in.

During the week artist Megan Clark-Bagnall will be on hand to help visitors challenge stereotypes by discovering and celebrating their identities through art, craft, and fashion.

Work created by guests will go on display in a new exhibition in the theatre’s Paccar room ‘ Rules Don’t Apply’ opening alongside the previews for The Boy in the Dress on November 8.
