The MAC is proud to be part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival, in partnership with Shakespeare Schools Foundation Join us 11th November for an exhilarating evening, featuring a series of unique abridged Shakespeare productions by local schools. See Shakespeare’s timeless stories brought to life like never before, and support young people from your local community as they take to the stage. Details of the schools performing at The MAC Theatre can be found on SSF’s website: shakespeareschools.org/the-festival Shakespeare Schools Foundation transforms lives through the unique power of Shakespeare. In this, the 19th year of the Festival, we celebrate a season of ‘Infinite Variety’ as young people of all ages and backgrounds discover the possibilities presented by Shakespeare in their school rehearsal room, culminating in a thrilling night of theatre.
