On Thursday 6th March, Years 5 to 8 travelled to the Curve in Leicester to watch a schools’ performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company of The Taming of the Shrew. They saw an abridged version of the play and then had the opportunity to ask questions of the cast. They were shown some of the dramatic ‘tricks of the trade’ and explored some of the play’s themes. The morning ended with a workshop, during which the children helped create atmospheric music to accompany one of the scenes from the play.
The whole occasion was much enjoyed and many of the children had their first experience of one of Shakespeare’s plays.
