Shakespeare in a Week Tutor: Mags Delaney

Mags’ sense of humour and passion for what she does is infectious.

As a primary school teacher both in the UK and here in NZ she has seen first-hand how being involved with drama has encouraged reluctant learners and helped build important social skills whilst having lots of fun. For her drama is the perfect vehicle for individuals to explore their world, themselves, and their relationships with others.

Mags is also an award-nominated stage manager so has good practical knowledge of stagecraft and is always eager to pass it on.

Mags has a love of Shakespeare which goes back to her own school days, where she was lucky enough to be taught by an inspirational teacher who made the words of the Bard understandable and relevant – something she has tried to do herself both in the classroom, during workshops and directing actors.
