MURDER will be on the minds of schoolchildren as Julius Caesar takes to the streets of Stratford.
Some 400 children aged between seven and 17, from schools across Stratford, are working with the RSC on a promenade perfomance of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedy which will see audiences taken on a tour of the town while they perform the play.
The play will take to the streets from June 28 to 30, with performances daily at 10am, 1pm and 4pm, and will stop off at a number of the Shakespeare properties.
RSC Education Programme Manager, Georgia Munnion said: “To build and strengthen our ongoing partnerships with both students and teachers within Stratford, we constantly make sure that schools are integrated into our season’s programming.
“As a way of doing this we invite teachers and students to take part in various events or festivals. We are delighted to be working with local schools on the project, which has provided us with the perfect opportunity to use live performance to explore the power of Shakespeare’s language and use of rhetoric with young people.”
