St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School: Shakespeare’s Playmaking Festival

On Tuesday 4th July Hannah and Kallie represented St Gregory’s Shakespeare Club and went on a trip to Stratford upon Avon. There they performed alongside ten other primary and secondary schools in Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’.

They have been rehearsing for four weeks at The Marlowe Theatre as part of The Royal Shakespeare Company Associated Schools Project. Their commitment and passion for this project has been amazing.

The lead teacher for this project wrote to them afterwards saying:

'You’ve performed at the RSC and that is not something many adults can ever say they’ve done, let alone someone your age. This is just the beginning though, please don’t stop now. If this was your first taste of an experience like this, don’t let it be your last. Stay curious, creative and brave. Keep working hard at everything you do and take opportunities when you’re offered them.'

We are really proud of both girls and have enjoyed seeing their confidence and enthusiasm grow throughout the project.
