Shakespeare Schools Festival

Exeter Phoenix is thrilled to welcome local talent to the stage as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

Each night three schools will perform three different Shakespeare plays. Come and celebrate the achievements of our local schools while enjoying a wonderful evening of entertainment. You will see Shakespeare performed as you’ve never seen it before!

The Shakespeare Schools Festival is the UK’s largest youth drama festival and enables over 1,000 primary, secondary, and special schools to stage abridged Shakespeare productions in their local professional theatre. 35,000 young people will take to stages across the UK.

‘What a fantastic evening! Lots of amazing new talent in our community. Enjoyed every minute of it!’
Audience Member, West London, 2014

‘I am delighted that the Shakespeare Schools Festival, through its reach across the UK, is enabling new generations of young people to discover why he is still the world’s greatest playwright. I am very proud to be a patron of the Shakespeare Schools Festival.’
Dame Judi Dench, SSF Patron
