Pupils from St Olave’s will perfom Macbeth in the National Shakespeare Schools Festival on Friday 19th Novermber at Joseph Rowntree Theatre in York.
The National Shakespeare Schools Festival is the world's largest youth drama festival led by The Shakespeare Schools Foundation.
The festival helps inspire the pupils and gets them excited about theatre. J5 are fully involved at every level of the production. There is a cast of 37, including the technical team who are running the sound and lighting for the show. Pupils have also been involved in costume design and are helping in the wings backstage. The cast have had to work on this play out of class time, attending rehearsals after school and also on Saturday. There has been a lot of hard work involved! Break a leg!
