Aims and Objectives:
- Run 48hr plays each term, and larger productions throughout the year.
- Run a series of smaller projects that our members can get involved with. These include workshops on how to handle Elizabethan text, film-making projects, academic debates and socials!
- Open to new talent and new ideas, giving you the opportunity to build up your theatrical experience.
We are a relatively new theatre society on campus, with a focus on Shakespeare and his contemporaries - recent productions include 'The Tempest', 'Hamlet', 'Dr Faustus', and 'Love's Labour's Lost'.
We run a 48hr play in Term One, and larger productions throughout the year. '48 hour plays' are rehearsed, produced, and finally performed over a 48hr intensive period. Our larger productions have a bigger budget and have the opportunity to run at full length! ShakeSoc also have an annual tour to Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the Bard, where they stage a show in a professional theatre.
We also have a series of smaller projects that our members can get involved with. These include workshops on how to handle Elizabethan text, film-making projects, academic debates, local school's perfromance initiative, and socials!
To keep updated on these and other exciting activities, like us on Facebook and join our members' group. We're always looking for ideas and proposals, so if there is something Shakespearian you have always wanted to do, let us know! As a smaller society we are always open to new talent and new ideas, giving you the opportunity to build up your theatrial experience.
If you want to get in contact with us, you can go to any of committee directly, or via the Facebook page.
