The Bard at Beaconsfield
Acclaim for Shakespeare for Schools production
Congratulations to the 30 students from years 9 – 13 that took part in the annual School Shakespeare Festival on Tuesday 13th Nov. The students performed a 30 minute version of Shakespeare’s comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ to a packed audience at the Wycombe Swan Town Hall. The cast have worked incredibly hard since September on the production which had a modern twist in the costume and setting and received rave reviews. One audience member commented, "It was the only one of the 3 productions on the night that I really felt I understood the language and story", and anyone who has studied Shakespeare knows that that isn’t easy!
