After the hard work, commitment and dedication of our Year 7 actors, they finally got to perform 'Romeo and Juliet' live on a professional stage at the Belgrade Theatre. Alongside two other schools last Thursday, they wowed a packed auditorium with their interpretation of Shakespeare's much loved play.
One of the directors expressed how proud he was of our cast for '...fully understanding and engaging with the language of Shakespeare and performing in such a professional and creative manner, especially alongside the live music'.
