The Sam Wanamaker Festival 2014 is taking place this weekend (5th - 6th April) - good luck to all the participants!.
The Sam Wanamaker Festival at Shakespeare’s Globe brings together students from Drama UK accredited schools for a weekend of workshops and masterclasses culminating in a performance of scenes by Shakespeare and his contemporaries on the Globe Stage.
The annual Festival is a springboard for aspiring actors. Several participants have jigged their way straight into the Globe theatre company and have started their professional careers on the Globe stage.
The Sam Wanamaker Festival is supported by Leverhulme Trust and is presented by Shakespeare's Globe in association with Drama UK.
