Highclare L5 and U5 students welcomed the Fred Theatre Company into school this week as a complementary session to their GCSE studies on Romeo and Juliet.
Six professional actors performed the GCSE text-based production of Romeo and Juliet, allowing students to view the text as it should be, on stage. The Fred Theatre Company produces a faithful rendition of the original play, just a little shorter, allowing the play to be brought to life within the school day, in our school grounds.
The cast concluded the performance with a discussion of the play’s themes, characters, how they approached the production, and choices made in rehearsal, with an opportunity for teachers and students to ask questions.
A fantastic opportunity to solidify students knowledge on Romeo and Juliet outside of the classroom.
