Year 6 Shakespeare Production in new theatre

With its tale of Greek heroes, royal fairies and misdirected lovers, it is one of the most famous plays ever written.

And in the capable hands of Elmhurst’s year sixes, it was a production fit to officially open the school’s multi-million pound new theatre.

Thirty-one young actors, drawn from across all four classes, put on a stellar version of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with the Bard’s beautiful, but challenging, original language.

The children worked incredibly hard over the last two months, rehearsing once a week to put on the 30-minute version of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy.

The show was staged three times last Tuesday, being watched live by year six and also one version was filmed to share with parents.
