Year 11 Students develop their Shakespeare Skills!

On Tuesday 19th March, a group of year 11 students from Felpham Community College performed an 80s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello at the Berry Theatre in Hedge End.

Rehearsals started in September, with students fitting in learning lines and translating Shakespearean language around revising for their exams. The students, who had little or no previous experience of acting, did an amazing job in limited time to produce a modern themed version of the play.

Mr Leadley, History Teacher commented:
“Students worked incredibly hard on their performance and we are really proud of them. It was fantastic to see them developing their skills, and understanding Shakespeare well enough to be able to see how it can transfer to modern language. They did a brilliant job of interpreting the story and actors. It was also a great experience for them to perform in a professional theatre in front of an audience. Well done guys, you worked really hard and it paid off.”
