National Shakespeare Schools' Festival

Twenty three Year 9 and Year 10 students from our School performed Much Ado About Nothing at The Tobacco Factory on the 20 November, as part of the national Shakespeare Schools' Festival. They have been working hard towards their performance for past 5 months, helped by student director Ella Khanna (Year 12). Ms Doyle said:

 

The festival co-ordinators praised the cast for their energetic performance that featured live music, brilliant comic moments and physical theatre. For many students, it was their first experience of performing in a professional theatre, and I was so impressed by the way they encouraged and inspired each other throughout the whole process. It was a pleasure to support these dedicated and talented students in creating such an engaging piece of theatre. We were also very lucky this year to have a student technician who designed and controlled all of the sound and lighting for the show.

Thank you to Ms Doyle who was the teacher director, to Mrs Edwards (Maths), for giving up her time to support the cast with their workshops and on their performance day, to Aileen Wilson, an ex-student who chaperoned the cast, and to all of the families and friends who came to the performance to support our students.
