South Craven School students prepare for Shakespeare Schools Festival
10:00am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
Stormy weather is forecast for South Craven School students as they prepare for the Shakespeare Schools Festival.
The 20 students will perform a 30-minute version of classic play The Tempest at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax.
They will share the stage with three other schools during the November 7 presentation as part of a nationwide festival.
Although they will not be judged, the performers will be given feedback by the other schools and a theatre professional.
The South Craven students have been rehearsing through the summer with teachers Hannah Bridge and Vicky Johnson.
School spokesman Pauline Kennedy said the Shakespeare Schools Festival was a new venture for South Craven.
She said: “The performers are from different age groups. We have a very thriving drama department, with regular school productions.”
