S4K are delighted to support the launch of the RSC Stand Up For Shakespeare Campaign.

standup-logo.gif The RSC originally proposed to launch the Manifesto with Shakespeare 4 Kidz as JOINT AUTHORS but we are delighted to be associated with the document as a CO-SIGNATORY; however S4K followers will recognise the three main elements of the campaign - DO IT ON YOUR FEET - SEE IT LIVE - START IT EARLIER - as being the heart and ethos of all that Shakespeare 4 Kidz has stood for since its inception in 1996.

In a message of our full and unequivocal support for "Stand Up For Shakespeare", S4K Founder and Chief Executive Julian Chenery commented:

"Since our inception in 1996, Shakespeare 4 Kidz have pioneered a Creative Shakespeare Education programme amongst Junior and Primary Schools here and abroad. We are delighted that the RSC – through the Shakespeare Manifesto – now endorses the innovative techniques, creative ideas and good practices that form the heart of our unique work .

"Do it – see it – start early. Simple, yet brilliant. S4K is living testimony that the Manifesto’s three key points work; we are proud to support it and urge other stakeholders and practitioners to do so. Bravo RSC! Encore!"

What they say about us:

"Even if the school is taking the kids this time (and I will be lobbying...) I'm going with mine again anyway, because I can't wait to sit in an audience of schoolkids expecting high culture and being presented with Bottom and Puck!"
