The Shakespeare Schools Festival performance is nearly upon us and will be the culmination of six weeks intensive rehearsals with students from year eight to twelve.

The cast have been working tirelessly over the past six weeks to bring this week’s performance to fruition

This has been one of the most enjoyable and inclusive experiences that we have had the privilege to be a part of. As producers we have been able to push the boundaries of creativity and stretch our students to achieve highly imaginative work. This has been in parts led by two outstanding young directors who have taken responsibility for choreography and movement as well as detailed characterisation work. The technical aspects of the show have also been led by A Level students specialising in lighting and sound. In our final rehearsals there has been a real sense that our students are going to achieve something very special. We are immensely proud of the intelligence and commitment of our young people. As the performance at The Egg is sold out we are hoping to arrange a home performance. Please look out for details in our school newsletter.
