Trip to the Barbican Theatre to see The Tempest
On Monday 17 July, thirty Year 8 students and three lucky teachers set off for the Barbican Theatre to see an exciting new Royal Shakespeare Company production of The Tempest.
The students had studied The Tempest this year and were really excited to see the play live.
The production, starring Simon Russell Beale as Prospero, saw the RSC partner with Intel to create some incredible draw-dropping special effects including wonderful holograms. (see image right)
All the students were an absolute credit to themselves and the school, showing great maturity and focus when watching and enjoying a complex play.
