Level 1 Cycle Training Y3 & Y4
We are looking forward to welcoming the Young Shakespeare Company back to St Mary’s with their workshop & performance of Twelfth Night for KS2 children.
‘Four Young Shakespeare Company actors perform Shakespeare’s enchanting comedy drama in a fast-moving fully-costumed interactive production. The play is brought vividly to life around and among the children, at times including the whole audience to create such dramatic scenes as the storm which shipwrecks Viola and Sebastian and the party at Lady Olivia’s which is so memorably interrupted by Malvolio.
Throughout the performance the children become actively involved in the play through a carefully structured range of drama and language activities. They are encouraged to explore the motives, thoughts and feelings of the characters. Volunteers from among the children are also chosen to become individual characters in the story and all the children have the opportunity to speak and enjoy Shakespeare’s words in short, accessible sections.’
