Junior Shakespeare

Christine Colbert —

At the end of term 2 the Year 10 Drama students staged a mini Shakespeare Festival. Students created their own groups to perform a scene from Shakespeare for friends and family in Manawa Toi Whakaari.

The scenes were self directed and they chose costumes and set to compliment their design concept. There were many very successful pieces and all the students grew in confidence and skill. 

Overall winner of the best scene was Twelfth Night with Harry Almey, Nico Rey-Virag Alverez and Jonathan Dubyk. 

Runner up was Romeo and Juliet with Darcy Monteith and Laura Cowles. 

Best costumes, set and ensemble was Macbeth with Grace Jones, Sersha Forde,Naomi Jutel and Niamh Dillingham. 

Best design concept was Midsummer Night's Dream with Emi Sharma, Emma Mitchell Ruby Hart and Yannick Medvecky Wolkenhauer.
