Last week, Panton Hall was packed out for the fantastic Year 8 performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’. The play is one of his classic comedies – filled with mistaken identities, love at first sight, practical jokes and a barrel of laughs. Many commented on how the whole class’ performance showed their impressive understanding of the plot and language – not an easy task! Every student took an onstage part, and each made great progress in their confidence.
Catherine R. took the central role of Viola who dresses up as the boy Cesario, and shone in her performance. Hallam B. also took up the challenging role of Malvolio, who needs to be both comic in his yellow-stockings and tragic as he is ‘notoriously abused’ at the conclusion of the play. Special mention should also go to Mara P. who confidently controlled the lighting of the whole show, having learnt how to do this for the first time!
Thanks again to all the parents who supported the production, by helping students learn lines, providing costumes and coming to enjoy the show. It couldn’t have happened without you. Enjoy the photos from the production on the Parent Portal, and thanks to Colin Hulett for taking them!
