17 and a novice in the thespian craft, As You Like It is her first of hopefully many more Shakespearean productions. This is her second official play to act in and she sends her best regards to you for coming to the performance!
Stuart Nolan is a 17-year-old who loves acting . He’s been in a number of plays with Chelsea Academy and St. John’s Drama Club, and has performed in a few minor Shakespeare productions, notably as Caliban in an abridged version of the Tempest and as Prince Hal in an excerpt from Henry IV, part 1.
Shakespeare understood the value of language rather than over done drama which ignored the beauty and simplicity of words. From an early age I have been instilled with a love of Shakespeare and his works. My experience includes back to back competition in the regional English Speaking Union’s National Shakespeare contest as the representative of Chelsea Academy. In the last two years, I also have attended over ten performances at Blackfriars in Stauton.
