Shakespeare Schools Festival 2018

Ms. Vasey Writes...

shakespeare schoolsA group of Year 9 students have been working on a production of Romeo and Juliet in association with the Shakespeare Schools Festival. They have been extremely committed, attending rehearsals on Mondays and Fridays each week, and have also attended a cast workshop at the Arts Depot Theatre. The students really enjoyed the workshop and here are a few of their comments:

“I had a great time and learnt how to develop my character in more depth.’’ - Madi (9K)

“I had a really fun time and I liked learning new acting techniques and doing different exercises to improve the understanding of my character - Imogen (9K)
The festival has not only allowed APS students to pursue their interest in acting but has also allowed those students interested in lighting and sound design to explore their talents and perform a valued role in the production process.

The pupils will be performing Romeo and Juliet on Friday 23rd November, along with 3 other schools who are involved in the festival.

We hope to see you on the 23rd November to support these talented and hardworking students!
