Shakespeare Rocks

22 – 23 June 2017

Both performances wowed the audience as Year 6 truly made Shakespeare Rock! This modern musical comedy about the life of William Shakespeare was brought spectacularly to life in the Drama Studio thanks to some amazing acting by the main players in Year 6 and the supporting ensemble of the Prep Choir and Year 5.

Shakespeare’s long lost diary has been unearthed and we were led on a tongue-in-cheek romp through the life experiences that helped influence the great Bard’s work. The songs had the packed house clapping and tapping along and the children were clearly enjoying themselves on stage. There were so many outstanding performances and great roles that enabled budding thespians as well as retiring wall-flowers to shine brightly. The confidence of these young performers was fabulous to see.

We were particularly impressed with their team work and the support they gave each other. It was a fun-filled hour which passed all too quickly and the curtain fell on what has been quite an adventure for this young group. They will leave with many happy experiences of Beechwood and this show will live long and fondly in their memories. Well done Year 6 and huge thanks to all the supporting cast, musicians, crew and parents.
