Community and Corporate Events

Back again in 2014, the ever-popular Shakespeare's Shorts continues to perform for events and festivals through the year.

Shakespeare's Shorts are fast and funny half-hour versions of the original scripts, delivered with QSE's trademark clarity and accessibility, and featuring trained, experienced actors. Each of the Shorts also features gentle audience participation to get you into the action.

If you would like to bring the Shorts to your community or corporate event, please contact us at shakespeareshorts@qldshakespeare.org.

Wonderfully fun & energetic performances, all our guests enjoyed it immensely!
