Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand

Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) is a life skills enhancing organisation which supports Shakespeare’s Globe, London and the artistic and educational strategies associated with furthering the international understanding of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in performance.

SGCNZ was founded in 1991. By the end of our 20th year in 2011, 80 000 students had been involved in our festivals and associated activities! Providing educational opportunities for people of all ages – primary, secondary, tertiary, emerging and professional theatre practitioners, teachers, corporate sector and lovers of Shakespeare – SGCNZ helps lift Shakespeare from the page to performance and other highly imaginative manifestations.

Developing skills of young people, including collaboration, co-operation, compromise, and at the same time, leadership, self-presentation, self- confidence, self-esteem, time management, project management and performance evaluation are just some of the key skills SGCNZ enhances.

This July, I'll be one of 24 students travelling to London as part of the SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company 2014 to represent New Zealand and study at Shakespeare's world famous Globe Theatre! For three weeks in the U.K. I'll have the opportunity to work with leading tutors and directors, see some of England's best theatre practitioners and perform on the stage of none other than Shakespeare's Globe theatre! To get there, I need to raise about $8,500 - your support, combined with my non-stop fundraising, will be vital in getting me on that plane!
