College becomes part of the Royal Shakespeare Company
STUDENTS put on a mini Shakespeare festival after the Royal Shakespeare Company made them one of the 10 schools to join its learning partnership network.
The pupils have called it Shakespeare, As If and it involves scenes that the students have interpreted in their own way from Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Emma Thayer, head of drama said: “The students are very excited about this project and have tackled the language head on with great creativity and enthusiasm. The RSC programme is a very prestigious link that our school community are very proud of.”
Broadoak College has been asked to organise a regional Shakespeare festival to direct and perform scenes from The Merchant of Venice. The regional festivals will be taking place as part of the world Shakespeare festival in association with the 2012 Olympics. All the schools involved will perform cenes at Broadoak College in March 2012 in front of a live audience.
