Bell's Ringing

The evening achieved great success raising tens of thousands of dollars to bring the Bell Shakespeare Company to school children across Australia in 2014 including remote primary and high schools in the Northern Territory. Actress Miranda Tapsell spoke passionately to the crowd about the huge impression the Bell Shakespeare actors made on her at the age of 13 when they performed at her school hall. Most recently Miranda received huge acclaim for her performance in “The Sapphires.”
