Students bring Shakespeare to Clarendon Sixth Form College

Performing arts students at Clarendon Sixth Form College perform iconic Shakespeare play for guests.

A midsummer night’s dream, a comedy play which is one of the best known of playwright William Shakespeare’s works, was performed in the college’s Brooke Vincent Theatre on Wednesday 8th May.

Family, friends and college staff attended the performance, which was developed, planned, rehearsed and performed by students as a part of their qualification.

The play is set in ancient Athens and tells the story of Theseus and Hippolyta, six amateur actors and how they find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies.

Derek Martin, performing arts teacher at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “Students did amazingly well under pressure to get this show perfect and performed to a tee on the day of the performance. They have developed their skills massively during their rehearsals and have done their families proud.”
