I am Ethan McGrath, and I am the regional representative for Taranaki after being second runner up in this year's Sheila Winn Shakespeare festival. I accomplished this by playing Prince Henry in Henry the IV, Act 2 Scene 2 with Boston Taylor and Thomas Olmo who played Falstaff and Poins respectively. I now have the opportunity to attend the 2020 SGCNZ National Shakespeare Schools Production in Dunedin, where I will be involved in workshops like learning Shakespeare, dancing, singing and fencing. There will also be rehearsal time which leads to 2 performances at the end of the week on the 2nd and 3rd of October.
I would like to thank all the sponsors who have made this trip possible for me.
Ethan McGrath, Deputy Head Boy
