New series announcement for Shakespeare’s Birthday!

Today, Shakespeare’s Birth/Death Day, we are delighted to announce our next project, commissioned and executive produced by the fabulous Phil Hayden, Studio Director, Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia, featuring their graduating class of 2021, created & directed by Sally McLean – “Walking Shadows Vol. 1”!

This new Shakespeare series is part of our educational outreach, informed from our work with Shakespeare Republic. The series was filmed in the same way as Shakespeare Republic Season Three (The Lockdown Chronicles) – recorded during the 2021 Melbourne lockdowns with Sally directing the students in real time via video conferencing as they filmed themselves on their smartphones and cameras.

The series will begin releasing episodes next month, so follow our social media for updates and more information from both us and HFAS Australia in the coming weeks.

Join us in the live chat on YouTube as we premiere the teaser for the new series at 4pm today AEST:⁠

And happy birthday Shakespeare!
