Romeo & Juliet

9th March 2017

On Thursday 9th March 2017, 80 Year 8 students had the incredible opportunity to go to the West Yorkshire Playhouse to see a modern production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.  Shakespeare’s classic story has been transformed into a vibrant new production, providing students with an opportunity to access one of Shakespeare’s classic plays, exploring teenage love and violence which is transformed in a vibrant new production set against an epic northern landscape.  The students went to see this classic play before studying it as part of their English curriculum.  This really brought ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to life for our Year 8 students!
