The Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa


Shakespeare Schools Festival (South Africa)

The Shakespeare Schools Festival (SA) is an international programme that aims to help school learners to improve their language and social skills through the performing arts – and performing Shakespeare in particular. The inaugural South African Festival was staged in 2007 and it has been held annually since then. Festival founder Kseniya Filinova-Bruton and her team, under the auspices of non-profit organisation Educape, have grown the Shakespeare Schools Festival (SA) into a nationwide phenomenon, with almost 100 participating schools!

In August 2018, the Shakespeare Society commenced a partnership with the wonderful people at CN&CO []. We are very grateful for their support. Exciting prospects lie ahead!

The executive committee invites applications from other organisations interested in partnering with SSOSA.
