Two students, Harlee Timms (Year 12) and Megan Heferen (Year 11) from The Cathedral School have recently returned from Brisbane after winning the Duologue section of the Queensland Youth Shake Fest Competition held at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts earlier this month.
Shake Fest organised by Shake & Stir Theatre Company, in its fifth year, has provided a unique opportunity for students across Queensland to focus their artistic abilities in an all-inclusive creative competition celebrating the works of William Shakespeare. Shake Fest is the original cross schools Festival connecting students' schools with a professional arts organisation.
Over 5,000 students entered the completion across the state, with 171 students representing their region at the state finals held in September. The duo performed an excerpt from the Shakespearean comedy Much Ado About Nothing to win their category topping other duos from Coomera Anglican College and Nudgee College.
