Macbeth was the name of the play our Year 6 performed this year, as part of the Shakespeare Festival 2016. The children get the amazing opportunity to work with the Royal Shakespeare Company. They performed at The Abbey Theatre, St Albans and were... BRILLIANT.
The children had a dress rehearsal in the morning and then performed to an audience of around 200 people that evening. They received professional feedback on their performance and on the technical and artistic interpretations.
Max was in the lighting box and did a fantastic job as technical manager with transforming light changes and sound edits.
There was good use of music too with classical excerpts used for dramatic influences.
The children were impeccable performers. They had purpose, projected, were focused and the Ensemble work was very effective. Lead characters performed with drive, intent and were very believable.
The feedback from parents was overwhelming and very positive.
The school were treated to a dress rehearsal too before the Final performance and they were all in awe. Just think Year 5, your turn next year!
