Sixteen Year 11 drama pupils from King James’s School, Almondbury, kitted themselves out in Army gear in order to make their attack on the Lawrence Batley Theatre when they performed their version of Macbeth for the Shakespeare Schools Festival.
The audience was impressed by their dramatic interpretation, powerful sequences and extreme imagery leaving them shocked and amazed by the pupils’ performance.
Pupils were given the opportunity to perform in a professional environment and experience the thrills and anxieties of a live performance.
All pupils excelled and were a credit to the school.
Fresh from that success rehearsals for the school production of Bugsy Malone went well with the gangs well and truly taking over King James’s School.
Everyone wanted to know whether Fat Sam’s Gang would be able to stop the mighty power of Dandy Dan’s gang?
Or would Dan finally get what he has always wanted... Fat Sam’s Grand Slam!
With a cast of over 70 pupils, a live band and a club-style audience space, this year’s production was one set no-one wanted to miss.
