NCT and SACEE present the Shakespeare Festival  

Villains, fools, kings and lovers inhabit the NCT stage as young Shakespeare pros flex their performance skills at NCT from the 13th to the 16th May. Every year in May, NCT hosts young Shakespeare enthusiasts between the ages of 10 and 25 from schools and universities, in a 4-day festival run by Dr Rohan Quince and the South African Council of English Education. The showcase culminates in a presentation of the best monologues and scenes. Come and catch the finalists as they display their prowess on the 16 May from 14:00 onwards.
