Our Shakespeare Society puts on its biennial production on November 16th, 17th and 18th in the Big Schoolroom, following successes in recent years such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice and The Comedy of Errors. Many senior pupils have already expressed interest in acting, singing, dancing, set design and helping backstage. We aim to involve as many people as possible, and to present accessible and enjoyable productions of the works of the world's greatest playwright. We will be holding acting auditions in the first week of term in September. Two years ago we put on As You Like It (pictured), with over 100 pupils involved in a spectacular production. This year should be equally good, given the talent seen in recent drama productions such as Grease, and musical events such as the 2006 Gala Concert.
