David Simes : Bachelor of Arts (BA)
David pursued theatre studies originally to be in the same class as his crush but soon discovered a love for performing and has been involved in theatre for the past three years. He has been in a handful of competitions and theatre performances such as Lipsync and Talent Quests, competing in Stage Challenge and the University of Otago Sheliah Winn Shakespeare Festival. David was also selected to be a part of Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) National Shakespeare Schools Production Week, and a member of SGCNZ’s Young Shakespeare Company. He counts this as his greatest achievement to date. As part of the 2016 SGCNZ’s Young Shakespeare Company, David travelled to London with 23 of his best friends to perform on Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and says it is an experience he will never forget. His future aspirations include becoming a writer and actor for the stage and the screen. David will study for a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Theatre Studies and English.
