Making Shakespeare Accessible

Last week two wonderful actors from the Sky Blue Theatre group came into school and ran two separate workshops with KS4/5 and KS3. KS3 performed the play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and KS4/5 performed ‘Macbeth’.

Some comments from the students were: “The actors were really funny”, “It was amazing”, “I found it very enjoyable, and they were very fun to work with” and “It was good fun”.

The Theatre actors enabled the students to tell the story themselves with structured support. The students were engaged and brilliant throughout. A big well done to those who won certificates for ‘Best Actor’ and ‘Best Comedian’.

We very much look forward to having them back in the future.

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent
