Kill Shakespeare goes to school — in Dubai!

With all the cons going on sometimes it gets tough to look ahead at what’s coming next so it was nice to find an e-mail in our in-boxes from Melanie Guidera who is part of the Backstage Dubai team helps Ben Caddy and the rest of the MEFCC team with education programs at the Con as well as teaches English and Film at the Emirates International School – Meadows.

Melanie sent us some great pictures from the school of Backstage Dubai’s team of actors running a shortened version of the Kill Shakespeare reading they will be performing at the Middle East Film and Comic Con.

The kids at the Emirates International School- Meadows seemed pretty taken with the performance and we hope to see many of them at the show — and then maybe again when Backstage puts Kill Shakespeare on for a two-week run in the Emirate.

It seems like kids in Dubai like a great show as much as the kids back home.
