QLD Youth Shake Fest 2017

Presented by shake & stir theatre co. 

Back for the fifth year SHAKE FEST provides a unique opportunity for students across Queensland to celebrate the works of William Shakespeare.

We are on a search to find the most passionate actors, dancers, musicians, photographers, videographers and visual arts students this state has to offer to join us on a Shakespeare journey of massive proportions.

The festival combines multiple art forms from across numerous categories including: Monologue, Duologue, Scene, Dance, Music, Design, Photography and Film.

Participants will showcase their work to the Brisbane public over two Shakespeare-packed days #atthejudy. They’ll participate in workshops, see a gallery of design work, mingle with other students from across the State, gain a behind-the-scenes insight into one of Brisbane’s most popular performance venues and flex their Shakespeare muscles for our adjudication panel.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see the State’s brightest upcoming talent, all with a passion for Shakespeare.
