The Merchant of Venice

As part of the English curriculum, Year 9 have been studying William Shakespeare's play, The Merchant of Venice. 

We recently had the pleasure of travelling down to Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, to watch the RSC production, directed by Robin Belfield.

The theatre was designed much like Shakespeare's globe, with wooden columns and balconies - all adding to the impressive atmosphere! 

Students enjoyed the 90 minute production which was full of comedy, music and fantastic costumes. 

Ms. Colley and Ms. Wheelton would like to thank the students for their fantastic behaviour in the theatre - it was a real pleasure.
