Students mark Shakespeare's 400th anniversary

William Shakespeare’s works were brought to life by talented performers from Highfields.

An Evening of Shakespeare was held in the school's Lyceum Theatre to mark the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death.

Students performed a 30-minute version of The Taming of The Shrew as well as monologues and duologues from a number of the Bard's other famous works.

Ms S. Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “Shakespeare's stories transcend time and culture and are able to speak to a number of audiences at the same time. 

"Being the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we thought it would be fitting for our students to honour him by performing a selection of his work.

"It was a lovely evening of entertainment with some really great contributions from more than 30 students."
