Sheilah Winn Festival, 2006

The Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival is an annual competition for secondary-school students, which has been held since 1991. Students act and direct short excerpts from the plays of William Shakespeare. In 2006 Logan Park High School pupils from Dunedin performed part of Romeo and Juliet. Here they rehearse, with drama teacher Denise Welsh providing guidance.
