40 students from 20 drama schools arrived at Shakespeare’s Globe on Friday and spent the entire weekend singing, workshopping and dancing together as part of the Sam Wanamaker Festival 2018

On Sunday they presented duologues from plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries to a roaring crowd. Photographer Cesare De Giglio captured them on stage and also backstage in the lead up to their energetic performance which ended with one mighty ‘Globe jig’!

The event was a gorgeous celebration of the conservatoire training available in the UK and lovely to watch emerging actors perform together as a company.

The 1,500 strong audience raised the ‘roof’ (well, we don’t have a roof but you know what we mean!) in support of the students – on Sunday Shakespeare’s Globe was pulsating with energy, at its liveliest and loudest.

Naturally we can’t wait to do it all again next year. See you in 2019!
