Shakespeare Team 2018

Rehearsals commence for our Shakespeare team!

We are thrilled to introduce our Shakespeare team for 2018, three very talented Victorian College of the Arts graduates; Jack, Naomi and James!

The team started rehearsals with an intensive text workshop, lead by CWTC's Artistic Director, Andrew Blackman. Our actors translated every word and sentence into modern English to further their understanding of Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet. No time for this in the classroom? Check out No Fear Shakespeare, it's a great resource with the original text and the modernised text side by side!

MacbethRomeo & Juliet and Great Southern Land (Poetry) tour in-schools throughout Victoria in Term 2, 3 and 4. If you'd like more information about these shows or would like to make a booking please contact our office.

Welcome to Complete Works’ 2018 Season

A note from our Artistic Director

While working on our VCE comparative study a line from The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood had particular resonance for me, ‘Every once and a while the fog parts and we get a glimpse of the living. It’s like rubbing the glass on a dirty window making a space to look through.’  It stuck me that this is exactly what we are doing when we read a text, compare or contrast ideas and issues, or track the wars of the inner world by playing them out on stage.

Live theatre enables students to experience the physical embodiment of viewpoints and perspectives played out in a shared space. Our aim is for students see more than the reflection of our shared experience in the plays and programs on offer, but by turning mirrors into windows we encourage them extend their learning and let their imagination take flight.

Complete Works’ 2018 season establishes a theatrical pathway for the study of English syllabus texts through early secondary to the all-important VCE years.  For students struggling to make meaningful connections or teachers wanting to reinforce existing knowledge there is a program right for you.

We look forward to seeing you at school or in the theatre.
