This year’s Year 7 and 8 Shakespeare production was rather different from our normal performances.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the boys could not perform in front of a live audience, and they had to keep in their ‘bubbles’ as much as possible. This did not deter us, though, and a bit of creative thought enabled us to put on a filmed production, with Years 7 and 8 filmed on different evenings and their scenes edited together. This meant that we could still enjoy the process of line learning, rehearsing, set designing, and costume making and wearing, while staying as safe as possible. We were very proud of the final result, and the necessary editing process also allowed us to play around with a few special effects!
