We are pleased to announce that this summer’s senior play will be Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Ours will be one of many productions taking place across the country to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. We will be using a slightly shortened version of the play so that there will be plenty of opportunities for singers and dancers to be involved as well as actors.
Pupils in Year 8 who do not crave the limelight will be running the show from backstage and will be heavily involved in the design and look of the performance. Auditions for speaking roles will be open to pupils in Years 8, Year 7 and Year 6 at the very start of next term.
Pupils can collect audition pieces before the end of this term and rehearse them over the Christmas holidays. We would be most grateful for help with costumes, make-up and so forth from parents. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
