A Midsummer Night's DreamPosted on: 22/06/2021
Our summer production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' was a wonderful success. The students have been rehearsing tirelessly over the past month to create their version of this classic story.
A Shakespeare play performed ‘in the round’ is big change from our usual Christmas Panto but our students embraced the challenge and delighted in the opportunity to take part. Pupils from local primary schools were invited to be our first audience members and, whilst sitting on hay bales and blankets, watched our students perform their version of the bard's comedy with glee. Parents, friends, staff and HDS students were welcomed to our evening performances to experience the magical production themselves. Some lovely feedback was shared from “The whole evening last night was such a delight, so uplifting, and I marvel at the wonderful talent and nurtured confidence of all the kids” to “Your teachers are so driven with a wonderful passion for their job that gives them such a drive and so much energy to be brilliant at what they do and I am so thrilled that they are sharing this passion and enthusiasm, and teaching my kids.”
It was lovely to see our students grow throughout the process of this play and the outcome was a truly wonderful show that was enjoyed by many. In such uncertain times we know that creating this play has been an enriching experience for them all. The dedication, time, effort and talents of our young people really shone through to enable us to bring the show to life, well done everyone involved. We cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
