This term, students are taking on one of William Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, to perform on a professional stage as part of the biggest national drama festival.
Members of the Drama Club will be treading the boards at the Z-Arts venue in Manchester this month, as they perform a shortened version of the gruesome story of Macbeth. A tale of ambition, treachery murder and come-uppance, the students are rehearsing their performance.
A visit to the venue had the students working alongside other young people from a school in Gorton. They were led by actors from the charity Shakespeare4Schools to develop their skills and to bring a greater understanding of the play.
Giving the job of putting on our performance in the festival to the Drama Club allows more students to take part and explore putting on the show, which will be in front of a paying audience.
Our students are performing on the evening of Friday 15th November. If you would like tickets to the show, they are available from Z-Arts on 0161 232 6089 or via the website z-arts.org
