Year 10 GCSE Drama Shakespeare Schools Festival Workshop
Currently, in Drama, we are working on the Shakespeare play As You Like It for the Shakespeare Schools Festival and we had the amazing opportunity to do a workshop with a practitioner who came to visit us here at school. We started the workshop by doing some warm-up games to help us really get immersed in our Shakespearean characters; I loved the creative atmosphere that was made just in the first ten minutes of the workshop. Afterwards, we managed to perform the scenes we had rehearsed in class to receive some amazing directions from the practitioner and our student director Megan (Upper Sixth). This really made us step out of our comfort zones, as we had to take on any comments that we were given to us. Overall, this workshop gave us the perfect chance to be experimental with our characters. We ended the workshop with a final performance of the work we did. If I had the opportunity again, I would love to do another workshop because it was such a spectacular experience!
