This week we were extremely lucky to have a visit from esteemed theatre director, Katie Lewis. As part of the Creative Education Trust annual Shakespeare Festival, Katie delivered a masterclass to a group of budding actors from a range of year groups. Katie has previously worked at The National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company, and it was clear to see the students were in awe of her and learnt so much in the short time she was with them.
In the morning, students worked on their vocal delivery and interpretation of lines from Macbeth, and then started to apply this to sections of the text in the afternoon. It was wonderful to see students work so cohesively together to create some beautiful interpretations of Macbeth.
We now can’t wait to get the show on the road and take it to Abbeyfield School in December for the finale of the festival when we will join other Trust schools taking part to deliver our final performance.
