The English Language Centre has previously worked together with members of Shax Theatre Group, based at the Unversity of Hong Kong. They have recently been in touch with us to ask if we would help them promote a new initiative. Please read the information below.

Dear Students,

We Want You!

We are a HKU-based theatre group called Hong Kong Shax Theatre Group and we are on the hunt again for our annual productions this year! After almost 5 years, we are once again staging a double bill and for the first time (in almost 10 productions) attempting a bilingual project – The William Shakespeare Double Bill: Macbeth (English) and the Comedy of Errors (Cantonese). We are on the look-out for students interested in drama in any form: as an actor/ stage crew/ props & sets team member/ costume & design artist/ make-up artist/ production manager/ stage manager.

Interview/Audition Sign-up

If you are interested in Macbeth (English), please fill in this form to sign up for an interview/audition:

If you are interested in the Comedy of Errors, please fill in this form to sign up for an interview/audition:

Please note that it is possible to audition/interview for both productions. Production and/or stage duties might overlap between both plays.

About/Contact Us

Founded in 2010, we are an established group of Shakespearean addicts based in the University of Hong Kong. With a mission to promote theatre culture to local youngsters by providing them with an out-of-the-classroom educational experience, a chance to hone literary and language proficiency, and participate social inclusion, we bedazzle with an array of acting, dancing, singing, composition and live band play, alongside adaption to the modern 20th century. Our 2016 comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona won Best Ensemble and Best Director at the Hecklers (hosted by HKELD). Our most recent play Love’s Labour’s Lost has garnered 5 nominations in five categories: Best Show (Non-Musical), Best Ensemble, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor.
