Shakespeare Brought to Life for Girls

Wednesday, 25 January 2012

Bolton School Year 5 and 6 girls took part in a drama workshop with the Young Shakespeare Company, who brought the play 'Hamlet' to life for them.

The promenade-style performance in Hesketh House Hall used costume and props to tell Shakespeare's tragic story. The actors involved the girls in recreating scenes from the play and enabled them to become actively and imaginatively involved in the play through a carefully structured range of drama and language activities. The girls were encouraged to think about the motives, thoughts and feelings of the characters and explore the language of Shakespeare.

The adaptation provided a memorable experience and left the girls very excited about Shakespeare.
