The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Over 300 students packed into the Old Hall to watch the live streamed performance of The Two Gentlemen of Verona from the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre, Stratford. A wide range of students from Year 7 to 13 attended, and we were also delighted to welcome a group of Year 6 students too. Students had read about the play and participated in workshops and mini-performances to prepare for the broadcast. This opportunity comes to us as part of our partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company and our status as a hub school in the RSC’s Learning and Performance Network, which has given students opportunities to study a wide range of Shakespeare’s work, and broaden and extend their cultural experience. We look forward to the next live broadcast in early 2015
