Workshop and Macbeth performance at the Little Theatre, Torquay
30th November 2016
Our Year 10 BTEC students performed a modern interpretation of “Macbeth”, in a celebration of Shakespeare with several other local schools and drama groups, at the Little Theatre in Torquay. The students decided to refresh the play by setting it in an American High School.
Other performances from Trinity students included Josh Walker's monologue from “Henry V”, and Harris Huddart in a spoof of “Macbeth” as part of The Tadpoles Youth Theatre Company.
'It was an extremely entertaining evening,' says Drama teacher Fenella Cooke, 'and a wonderful showcase of our students’ talents. They all performed beautifully!'
Our students' experience followed a trip to the Little Theatre earlier this month, when the group were given the fantastic opportunity to take part in an exciting workshop, given by the cast and director of the Macbeth production which was being performed at the theatre. The workshop helped them to understand the play and gave them insights into the characters' motivation through working on extracts, and hot seating the different characters. The experience really helped them deepen their understanding of the play. The students were then taken to see the production before enjoying a back stage tour.
