FAHS Feilding High School was pleased to welcome Manawatu Summer Shakespeare's director, Peter Hambleton and stage manager, FAHS Feilding High School alumni Lau...ren Fergusson to the school today to work with our student Shakespeare group.
The students work-shopped through a scene from this year's production, The Comedy of Errors, and received feedback from Peter, Lauren, as well as cast members and FAHS Feilding High School alumni Brittney Dicker and Nyah Toomey.
Our Director Peter Hambleton is also the current Artist in Residence at Massey University. He and a few of our cast and crew have been visiting high schools for the Arts in Schools program and to talk about The Comedy of Errors. So far they have visited Awatapu and Feilding High Schools. 📷: Cam Dickons
