Tuesday 05 April 2016

180+ children under 11 were quoting Shakespeare.

That proves once and for all that Shakespeare is for everyone!  -Ms Hall  Drama Teacher

At Ark Oval Primary Academy we have a great history of studying & performing the works of Shakespeare.

In 2012 year 3, 4 and 5 were tasked to perform 6 plays in 60 minutes. Pupils rehearsed and worked extremely hard for weeks resulting in a splendid rendition of 'The Comedy of Errors', 'Othello', 'A Midsummer's Night Dream', 'Much Ado About Nothing', 'Macbeth' and 'Romeo and Juliet' to a full audience over two days.

In 2014 Ark Oval again celebrated the works of Shakespeare this time with year 6 performing to a packed audience in the magnificent setting of the Shaw Theatre Euston. The students performed a fantastic performance of the Tempest and really shone under the spot lights of a real London stage.
