Shakespeare For Schools Workshop
Thirteen actors and actresses went to Middlesbrough Theatre this morning to take part with Northfield School in a drama workshop run by the Shakespeare company. The pupils took part in some drama games and exercises and both schools showed part of their plays with the other school watching and acting as supportive critics. The first two scenes of Hamlet were very well received by the other school and the Shakespeare For Schools staff. The pupils saw the theatre they will be acting in three weeks today and became familiar with the space. It was lovely for Mrs Egan, Mrs Ashcroft and I to see the pupils from both schools work together and hear so many positive comments about our pupils.
I asked some of our pupils what they enjoyed about it and they said working with other pupils, the atmosphere, being in the theatre, the acting and that it was exciting. Well done to all who attended today and worked so hard. Tickets will be on sale this week
