We are very happy to present The Shakespeare Showcase directed by two of our Upper Sixth drama scholars: Sophie and Fiona. This project was started during lockdown, when Sophie and Fiona held auditions and began rehearsals online. They had a vision of a Shakespeare performance that would involve students from a cross-section of year groups and explore key characters across four Shakespeare plays. The cast and directors have worked steadily on this project, gradually moving their rehearsals from an online forum into the Studio Theatre. We are delighted to bring you their final showcase, filmed and edited by St Helen’s Performing Arts Facilities Manager, Mr Verjee. The actors and directors have created some wonderfully engaging snapshots of each character, giving an insight in to each of the wider plays.
We hope you enjoy the show!
