The children perform in full costume and stage make-up, and while their plays are abridged, the fine language and nuance of Shakespeare is retained.
If you are interested in seeing these plays performed, contact our Registrar Mrs James to arrange a viewing.
Below are two snaps from today's classroom rehearsal of a key scene in Upper First's The Merchant of Venice.
