Since the beginning of Winter Term, the Year 5 boys have been working hard during Performing Arts and in their own time to prepare for their musical, 'Shakespeare Rocks'. They will present two shows (a matinee and an evening performance) in the Dickinson Centre on Wednesday 22 November. All of their hard work became truly evident last week as we set aside three big rehearsal days in order to pull the whole show together. We are all very excited about the premiere.

In the show, Aubrey, The Rough Shakespeare Company's pretentious director, obtains what appears to be William Shakespeare's lost diary. Along with Al, his down to earth assistant, the pair decide to embark on an exclusive adaption of the flamboyant Bard's personal journal.

'Shakespeare Rocks' is a fresh, funny and up-to-date look at the life and times of William Shakespeare, with a cast of hilarious historical characters, amusing glimpses into some of his works and how he came 'To Be'.
