The Taming of the Shrew

Week by week

Week 6

It's the first full week of performances! Check out some photos from Tech Week down below.

During the first few performances of any play at the Globe the creative team usually watch and make notes on the production. These performances are the conclusion of the rehearsal process and provide the actors with the chance to experiment on stage in front of an audience. The creative team and actors can guess during rehearsals how an audience might react to the play and to certain scenes, however it isn’t until there is a full audience in the theatre that they really know! Once the running time and the pace of the play become apparent, and the director and actors may make small changes to ensure the audience fully understand the story of the play.

NEW BRIEF AVAILABLE – Design a Costume

A creative brief is given to each member of the creative team working on the project. It is intended to help them structure their ideas and keep a focus on the director's intended vision for the production.

Head over to the interviews page to hear the actors thoughts on their characters. Why not pick your favourite character and try making your own costumes for them and send it to us at: youngcreatives@shakespearesglobe.com.
