SHAKESPEARE audiences will be able to take a closer look at work created by arty youngsters from Stafford schools and day centres.
Artists Mark Uttley and Helen Wilson, from Independent Community Arts Partnership, have been running workshops to celebrate As You Like It at Stafford Castle.
Pupils from St Paul's Primary School created a bus driven by Shakespeare with some of the cast looking through the windows.
Parkside Primary youngsters created four scenes from the play and St Austin's Primary School made a scene in the forest with members of the cast in full musical swing.
Adult members of Quest Day Centre looked at Andy Warhol and created some of the cast using stencils, sponge and paint, while people from Milford House, part of South Staffordshire and Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust created Shakepeare as a hippie and the Rising Brook Library drop-in created a jigsaw of As You Like It.
The workshops were funded by Councillor Maureen Compton, Ian Hollinshead and Stafford District Arts Council and all those who have taken part will go to watch the show at the castle.
