Join us to celebrate brilliant young performers from six schools in the region take to the stage to perform Shakespeare’s tale of love, friendship and misunderstanding as part of the RSC Associate Schools Programme.

Over the past few weeks students from St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School, St. Oswald’s RC Primary School, Corbridge Middle School, Hadrian Primary School, Sacred Heart RC High School and St Michael’s RC Primary School have been working on bringing their section of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies to life and they will all come together to perform for one evening in a celebration of their hard work.

This performance is part of a long term partnership between the Royal Shakespeare Company, Northern Stage and Sacred Heart RC High School and is PWYC (Pay What You Can). If you do feel able to make a contribution then any donations will go towards supporting Northern Stage to deliver future projects with children and young people, just like this one.
