I'm travelling to London for three weeks as a member of the SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company (Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand Young Shakespeare Company), to study, learn, immerse myself in and perform Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre!

 

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN ME ON MY JOURNEY TO THE GLOBE!

Without a doubt, this trip will be a life-changing, capacity building experience for both my personal and career development. During the three weeks that I'll spend in the UK, I'll see and be influenced by some of England's best theatre practitioners and experience first-hand the Globe Theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, not to mention being able to perform on one of the most famous stages in the world!

By joining me on this journey you can retain a vested interest in my development, not only as a young person, but as a young performer.

  

HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE TO MAKING MY DREAM A REALITY?

Selection to the Young Shakespeare Company 2017 means that I need to raise $8750 to cover costs - this includes international and domestic travel and taxes, insurance, course fees, accommodation, meals, theatre tickets and incidental expenses. I intend to pursue a full-time job or two part-time jobs alongside my Boosted campaign to raise the full amount, so every cent raised is another step towards my final goal. 

Once you have donated, you can keep track of my fundraising through my YouTube channel (link in header), my Instagram (@beejnori) and eventually, when my campaign is successful, I will be posting photos before, during and after my trip!

 

WHO IS THE SGCNZ YOUNG SHAKESPEARE COMPANY?

I am one of 24 students selected from 5000 secondary school students to represent New Zealand. We were chosen from SGCNZ's Regional and/or National University of Otago Sheila Winn Shakespeare Festivals, originally as a group of 48 students, to attend a week-long intensive SGCNZ National Shakespeare Schools Production, held at Otago Boys' High School House in Dunedin in September 2016. Of 48, 24 of us were chosen to represent NZ as a part of the SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company.

Our selection is not based on artistic merit alone - we are all of a high standard of acting, as observed by the Assessors at the Festivals. It was also on our ability to collaborate, be team players, relate to all age groups, "be sponges", and develop from the opportunity.
