"To be or not to be, that is the question." Hamlet - Act III, Scene 1.

As part of our celebration of World Book Day, Shakespeare Shorts and the English Department Drama after school clubs presented an abridged production of Hamlet in the Senior School Atrium – this provided an effective backdrop with the stairs doubling as “battlements and ramparts”. Year 4 to 7 pupils had worked really hard over the few weeks this term leading up to the event and their efforts paid off in a wonderful performance. Their voices were clear and expressive and some promising acting talent emerged. The performance followed on from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” last year and we will have to think about which of “The Bard’s” work we will enjoy next time around.
