Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is our flagship project for secondary and A-level students. These productions are created especially for young people and are an opportunity for all the family to attend a full-scale, fast-paced 90-minute performance in the Globe Theatre.
Packed with intrigue, double crossing and plenty of laughter, Much Ado About Nothing is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for families. Following the turbulent romances between Hero and Claudio and Beatrice and Benedict, this exploration of what loyalty, chivalry, and true love really mean empowers young people to challenge their own perceptions of relationships.
Since 2007, Globe Education and Deutsche Bank’s partnership has given over 170,000 free tickets to students to see a performance at the Globe. For many of them it will have been their first experience of live theatre, let alone Shakespeare. The partnership between Deutsche Bank and Globe Education is part of its youth engagement programme, Born to Be. Deutsche Bank is committed to inspiring young people, supporting them in their studies and creating the opportunity for them to achieve their full potential.
Much Ado About Nothing opens at Shakespeare’s Globe on 23 February and runs until 21 March. Over 20,000 free tickets are available for state secondary schools in London and Birmingham.
