We studied everything Shakespeare; we analysed the language, found hidden meanings and related it to our lives. And we learnt techniques useful for our future acting careers, with the Globe bringing out the best in each of us. Nothing beats it!
I applied for Youth Theatre because I wanted to get better at learning lines and get to know some of Shakespeare’s plays. I recommend that anybody who wants to be more confident and make new friends with people that have similar interests to you should join. It was a really rewarding experience that everyone would find enjoyable!
