YEAR 7s ENJOY SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION THANKS TO OUR TRUSTEES
All our Year 7 students were treated to a fantastic production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ thanks to the generous support of our Trustees. A cast of five from Quantum Theatre Company captivated the students throughout the performance.
Katy Wand, English Teacher, said: “It was such a joy to see our Year 7s thoroughly entertained by Shakespeare. With Covid lockdowns and restrictions there have been very few opportunities for live theatre so this was a real treat and we are so grateful to the Richmond School Trustees for funding this – it has been an amazing experience. Our students really did us proud; indeed, the actors told me that our Year 7s were the best audience they had ever had and clearly knew the play well, laughing at jokes that even an adult audience don’t get! The production was lively, action-packed and hilarious – a memorable occasion for everyone involved.”
