Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) is an organisation which focuses on mentoring and enhancing life skills through Shakespeare. It interacts and collaborates with Shakespeare’s Globe in London.

Annually, the centre run the University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, whereby students around NZ can submit Shakespeare-inspired work under a range of categories.

Students who are keen to submit entries to the Festival work alongside a range of staff depending on their speciality (i.e. music composition, essay, costume design).

There are also opportunities to direct and perform in short scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. Auditions for these are held very early in the school year, with the expectation that students will commit to a full term of rehearsal in term 1 before the regional festival in April.
