Shakespeare in the Woods

All the World’s A Stage and certainly our stunning Theatre in the Woods is a fantastic backdrop for any event – but for Shakespeare it is simply magical. Pupils from years 9, 10 and 12 performed sonnets, monologues and scenes on a perfect Midsummer Night. The Dream created a framework for other plays to be woven in, with well-known plays As You Like It, The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth alongside lesser known plays Henry 1V part 1 and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. Special mention must be made for guest performer Chips the dog who, despite the appearances of a lion and a bear, kept his focus and showed himself to be a natural on the stage.
