Brush up on your Shakespeare

Members of the A Portada English-language theatre group will be staging a production of the Shakespeare comedy Twelfth Night.

However, for theatre goers who would like to learn more about the play before taking their seat in the theatre, an especially designed education pack to accompany the production is available.

The free education pack has been prepared by English teacher Carolyn Kain.  Originally intended for use by teachers and students in secondary schools, the pack is also a great way to learn about the plot of the comedy.

No previous knowledge of the play is required to be able to use the education pack, which consists of seven activities that build on each other including true and false questioning and gap fill activities, with users being able to choose to complete the tasks on the computer screen or by printing off the pack into a nine-page booklet.

The A Portada production of Twelfth Night will be staged at the Teatro Lethes in Faro on March 25 and 26 from 8pm with a matinee performance on March 27

from 5pm.

Tickets to the play cost €12 and €7 for students with group discounts also available.
