400 Years Dead

Our drama specialists Zoe Brook, Charles Donnelly and Jenni Green worked for 12 weeks with the children and teachers of Uplawmoor Primary School on a project celebrating the works of William Shakespeare.

The project culminated in performances for parents and the local community.

Singing, dancing, sword fights, comedy & high drama all featured in the show. The Bard was raised from his grave to narrate and guide the audience through adapted and abridged versions of 4 of his best known plays.

The whole school was involved in the performance, with P1, 2, 3 taking on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and P 4/5 an adapted version of Romeo and Juliet.  P6/7 performed short versions of Hamlet and Macbeth in original Shakespearean text.
