Shakespearian Theatre visits The Venue and Walton High!

ShakespearianTheatrecollageOn 16th October, a travelling theatre company came to perform Macbeth and Hamlet to students in years 11 and 8. Students made the most of this great opportunity to see texts that they have studied and also take part in small workshops. This gave them the experience of Elizabethan stagecraft and learning scripts in an authentic atmosphere which will no doubt be useful in their classroom explorations of the plays. 

Many thanks to the SayTwo Production team for coming to Walton High.
