Getting teenagers hooked on Shakespeare

From Nine To Noon, 9:40 am on 22 January 2016

400 years ago, the world's most famous playwright died. William Shakespeare's 37 plays are still performed regularly around the world. 2016 also marks the 25th anniversary of the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand, which runs the annual Shakespeare Festival - a competition where secondary students perform five and 15 minute scenes from Shakespeare's plays, set in any time, place, dress. Dawn Sanders is its founder and chief executive.
