The Royal Shakespeare Company at Hodgson

In November, all Year 8 students were very lucky and privileged to watch a production from the Royal Shakespeare Company who were performing ‘The Comedy of Errors.’

The cast came from Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-Upon-Avon and commented on how polite and engaged our students were throughout the entire performance. Some students were even allowed to perform with the cast making it interactive for everybody involved.

As well as the professional cast, the performance also involved 20 very confident and entertaining primary school students from Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Primary School who performed Egeon’s speech at the start of the play.

It was a fantastic performance from the RSC and we hope that they return again soon to Hodgson Academy.
