2015-16 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
'A tremendous campaign and competition (...) I only wish every child were able to take part.' Ben Crystal, 2015 Grand Final Judge.
The ESU Performing Shakespeare Competition allows all Key Stage 3 pupils and homeschooled pupils between the ages of 11 and 14 to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of Shakespeare through theatre and performance. With newly created resources available to teachers during the process, the ESU is excited to enter the 5th year of this growing national competition.
Pupils submit a short video of themselves performing a monologue or duologue from any of Shakespeare's texts. These are then adjudicated by our regional panels and the best entries are sent forward to the Regional Finals, a day which will include educational workshops and a reprise of the video entries in front of a live audience. Winners from each region will be invited to the National Grand Final in London, in March 2016.
Performing Shakespeare is kindly sponsored by the ESU's London Region.
HOW TO REGISTER
Registration for this competition is free of charge and there is no limit to the number of pupils who may enter from each school.
The registration form can be found here. Registration will close on 23rd October 2015.
If you have any queries regarding the competition, or would like to register a homeschooled child, please contact the National Co-Ordinator, Emma Coffey on Emma.Coffey@esu.org or 0207 529 1590.
