Chosen among New Zealand’s most talented student performers

Congratulations to Anisha de Silva who won a place in the exclusive Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand National Shakespeare Schools Production this year. 

Forty-eight students, chosen from the SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals around the country, spent half of each day doing workshops with high calibre tutors, and the other half rehearsing a 40 minute scene from a Shakespeare play. From being cast on their first day, they had just five half days of rehearsals before their public performances on 2 and 3 October.  

Anisha performed in 'King John', and was highly praised for her talent and commitment to the work by the directors and CEO Dawn Sanders.
