Shakespeare Schools Festival

Shakespeare Schools Festival

At Don Valley Academy we have always loved taking part in the Shakespeare Schools Festival and as a director I have truly relished the opportunity of seeing my vision brought to life by our amazingly talented students.

Once again, the drama students have wowed me with another stunning performance. The dedication that they have shown was incredible. After creating the opening to the show in July, they have worked tirelessly rehearsing twice a week since September to ensure the performance was the best it could possibly be.

Students involved ranged from Year 7- 11 and it was heart-warming to see the friendships forged across the year groups and levels of respect and comradery within the cast. The students also conducted themselves professionally both on and off stage proving themselves to be a credit to Don Valley Academy.

It has been a pleasure to direct them and watch them bring Shakespeare’s words to life and I can’t wait to do it all again next year!
