This year we are taking part in the Shakespeare Schools festival for the fifth time. Our chosen play is Romeo and Juliet. Year 10 GCSE drama students are very busy rehearsing a 30 minute version of the play at lunchtime and after school. Last Monday we took part in a cast workshop which was run by a team professional actors. They watched a 5 minute snippet from our play and then gave us valuable feedback and acting hints and tips. Our sound and lighting technician Jacob Moran also got the chance to discuss his ideas for the script with the Hall for Cornwall team.
We will be performing Romeo and Juliet at The Hall for Cornwall on 6th November at 7pm. There will be three other schools performing a variety of Shakespeare’s well known works on the night. Come along and support Richard Lander in their version of a tale of love and loss …!
