Year 4 bring William Shakespeare classic Macbeth to life
26th March 2019

A Preparatory School year group put their own stamp on a William Shakespeare classic as part of their annual production.

The Year 4 contingent at Rydal Penrhos held their Macbeth shows on Tuesday, March 19 and Wednesday 20, which saw a large crowd descend on the School Hall over the two nights.

Shane Ayeni gave an accomplished performance in his role of power-hungry Macbeth, with Emily Nurse’s emotional depiction of Lady Macbeth another standout feature of the play’s overall success.

Areesha Owais, April Miss, Sophie Morris and Martha-Rose Johnson portrayed the three conspiring witches incredibly well throughout, with the performances of Will Cheesley (Banquo), Felix Griffin (Lennox), Grayson Williams (Ross) and Noah Roberts (Macduff) also catching the eye.

The assassin duo of Harry Nurse and Hudson Lamb were outstanding, with James Davies, Harper Burke, Robyn Borg Barthett, Josh Williams, William Northam, Lewis Jellicoe, George Rozek and Jorvan Toor all contributing significantly in various roles.

Year 5 pupil Will Glanville lent his support to the production by standing in on the second night, and the play was narrated superbly by April Williams.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Year 4 group held their nerve and gave two incredible performances for their Macbeth production, and they deserve an incredible amount of credit for the application each of them demonstrated during the actual show and the rehearsal process.

“We are very proud to promote the Performing Arts in numerous different ways throughout all year groups, which plays a key role in the overall development of our children.

“My thanks also goes to the incredible staff team for their invaluable commitment and enthusiasm throughout the planning process.”
