18th March 2019 – Last week the Young Shakespeare Company came in to perform the story of Romeo and Juliet for Year 9.  Here are some reviews from the pupils …

I really enjoyed it as, before they performed, they did a small workshop and talked through how they as a company turn a script into a performance. I found it really interesting as the audience was more engaged. – Philippa Green

I liked how the actors gave us a different perspective of each character’s personality. It was interesting to see them portray Mercutio as having an equal part in his own death. – Sarah Hill

They made the characters very believable, meaning that many of us were almost in tears by the end. Also, the actors were very friendly and eager to talk to us about what they do. I especially liked the intensity when Romeo, Juliet and the Friar were conspiring together. – Julia Reeve
