Introduction to Adjudicating

Introduction to Adjudicating

Sunday 10th Feb 2019 9:30am - 4:45pm

Discover what it takes to be a GoDA Adjudicator
Being an adjudicator can be an incredibly rewarding job, but it can also be a challenging one. Join experienced GoDA practitioners for a day of informative and practical talks and workshops that provide an introduction to the life and work of an adjudicator.

Introduction to Adjudicating is broken down into sessions led by experienced GoDA members who will guide you through the inner workings of adjudicating drama.

The day is not a formal part of the entry process and is your chance to ask as many questions as you would like as well as trying your hand at adjudicating in a safe and comfortable environment. Should you wish to go forward for the selection weekend you will not be assessed by any of the adjudicators who have led sessions during this introductory day.
NB. Although there is no requirement for you to have completed the day in order to progress to the selection weekend, we have found that the day proves very successful for candidates who decide to apply for Associate Membership of the Guild.

Shakespeare in Italy Summer School, Florence



July 6-19

5 per cent discount on all bookings received with €400.00 deposit before February 15

I'm contacting you with details of Shakespeare in Italy's 5th summer school, to be held this year at the British Institute in Florence from July 6 – 19.

The summer school gives participants the rare opportunity to work with tutors who are leaders in their field in the UK theatre world. Royal Shakespeare Company and Globe directors Lucy Bailey and Chris Luscombe will lead work on Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet and acclaimed actor/director Philip Franks on The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Last year in Pizzo Calabro we had a wonderful group, ranging in age from 18 to 95 from all over the world. Everyone took part in putting scenes from the plays on their feet but in past years some people have wanted to participate from the comfort of their seats. Both approaches are welcome!

Our course is practical, not academic, and it is open to all, the only proviso being that you can speak English fluently.

The benefits are innumerable and there is always a lot of fun to be had as well as gaining great theatrical insight into the texts. Please find the attached PDF for more details and contact Mary Chater at shakespeareinitaly.eu@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

We'd love you to join us but don't delay booking because summer hotel rooms in Florence get snapped up very quickly! If you would like to book, just email me without delay. I will give you the details you will need to make your deposit and save your place on the course. Don’t forget if we receive this before February 15 you will receive a 5 per cent discount!

With best wishes from Collette Parker and Mary Chater (a founder of the company)

Shakespeare in Italy – ‘country and playwright – exploring the relationship through performance.’
