Young Shakespeare Company Inspires Girls

Friday, 15 November 2013

On Thursday afternoon, Year 5 and 6 pupils were treated to a thrilling and innovative interpretation of the Shakespearean drama, Romeo and Juliet.

The story telling was clear, concise and meaningful. It dealt with themes of love, hatred, obedience and secrecy. Whilst there were many elements of humour in the drama, there was pathos too.

An abundance of audience participation helped create the tension of certain scenes between the rivalling Montagues and the Capulets. Pupils were keen to undertake their parts with a sense of gusto. How pleasurable it was to witness all the girls learn in such a dynamic way.

The young Shakespeare Company's portrayal of this tragedy was a tremendous success!
