Welcome! Thank you for joining us for the Year 9 Shakespeare Festival.

Tonight our students will present their Shakespeare performances which they have undertaken as part of their Bronze Arts Award. It has been quite a challenge this year to put this festival together with students working on these productions in both lessons and after school rehearsal. For many this will be their first time in front of an audience and so there will be no doubt a lot of nervous actors making their debut! My thanks go to Miss Samantha Parker and her team of Gold Arts Award 6 th Form directors for putting the festival together. I hope that you will all enter into the spirit of the performances and support the students tonight by being an appreciative audience. Many thanks and I hope you will enjoy! Mr C. Cresswell

Head of the Arts Faculty
