Fifteen talented local actors (aged 10 to 17) are bringing the Bard to life with a rollicking romp through the life, times and works of William Shakespeare in Driftwood Theatre School’s (DTS) upcoming All the World’s a Stage.

“Our young actors have accomplished the impossible,” raves instructor/director Ingrid Bilton. “They have not only mastered a new language, they have learned to speak ‘trippingly on the tongue’ – a lost art, to be sure. I am so impressed by the courage and tenacity of our students in tackling these iconic roles from Shakespeare’s greatest plays. I am truly amazed at the outstanding quality of their work.”

The sumptuous sets (built Doug Ives and painted by Mudito and Bodhi Drope), along with costumes from Carol Thompson and the Driftwood Players’ Costume Shoppe, make this production a feast for the eyes.

But stage manager Sandi McGinnis notes it is the young actors who really make the production sparkle. “We thought we hit the pinnacle with last years Alice in Wonderland, but our current production of All the World’s a Stage has raised the bar for theatrical and ensemble work.”

The general public are invited to the two public performances Saturday, April 30 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets ($15 adult and $8 youth) are available at the Blackberry Shop, Laedeli, giggle ’n bloom, and at the door. For info go to www.driftwoodplayers.ca/dts.htm.

DTS will take All the World’s a Stage on the road in May, offering free performances at schools across the Sunshine Coast. The tour is made possible with the financial support of the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation and the Sunshine Coast Regional District, who are helping to bring the magic of live theatre to local youth.
