Year 7 students immerse themselves in some Shakespearian dialogue
On Tuesday, 7th March, the Year 7s got to see a wonderful performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night’ by the Orange Tree Theatre Company and also participated in a workshop.
It was a great way to learn more about Shakespeare and will also help the Year 7s in their drama class this term because we are studying Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. They performed amazingly and there was a lot of comedy, romance and action involved. It was also a great way to spend some time learning some new drama skills.
Finally it was a beautiful performance and I am very glad that we, as a year group, had the opportunity to see it.
The actors and crew told Miss Povey afterwards how impressed they were with the students, following with an email saying:
‘Can I just re-iterate how much the cast enjoyed their morning? We were really well looked after and it was an absolute pleasure to visit the school.
Please do pass on to your students that the cast were hugely impressed by their behaviour throughout, the lovely atmosphere in the school, and the clear engagement of the group during the workshop at the end. Clearly a very bright bunch and a credit to Hampton High! We'll be hard pushed to have a more successful show I think.’
Look out for our next newsletter where you will be able read feedback from Miss Povey!
