We were delighted to welcome the Young Shakespeare Company back to the school for a series of workshops and a fantastic performance to our Year 7s.
Organised by the English department, the girls spent the morning learning the plot of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and were given the opportunity to take on some of the parts and learn some of the key lines. In the afternoon, they were treated to a highly engaging, modern twist on the popular Shakespeare play. With lots of dancing, singing and humour, the laughter emerging from the hall highlighted that the bard's most famous work had lost none of its charm.
After the performance, the girls had the chance at the end to ask the actors a range of questions, both about the play and about their own acting experience.
