12th Feb 2019 – Recently the Globe Players returned to Loreto to perform for Years 7 and 8. The actors gave the Year 7 students an introduction to the various styles of play written by Shakespeare, and there was a focus on the comedy plays for Year 8.
Clara Spitzer and Emily Waidley from 7F wrote this review of the performance:
We really enjoyed the play because the acting was really good and it felt like you were there watching a Shakespearean play in the theatre. They used the few props they had very well. We also think they adapted to the characters they were playing and they made it very funny at times. Our favourite bit was when they acted out some of the Macbeth scenes, as it was very dramatic.
As part of their study of Shakespeare, pupils in Year 7F and 7T have produced models of the Globe Theatre which look fantastic. Well done to all of them!
