Macbeth - Nunhead

Something wicked this way comes...

We are rubbing our hands with glee as we prepare our FEBRUARY HALF TERM drama camp.

We'll be presenting our favourite play - Macbeth

We're going to play and work hard and have lots of fun. We're going to learn about Shakespeare and the age in which he wrote. Yes, we're going to learn about iambic pentameter - not only that, your 5 to 11 year olds will write their own verse, and speak lots of Shakespeare! We'll create characters. We'll design our set, props, and costume. We'll learn some story telling skills like puppetry, mask, stage combat. And we'll have so much fun....did I say that already?

Monday: When shall we three meet again? 

William.....who....? Introducing the greatest playwright that ever drew breath, his world, the people who watched his plays, were they so very different to us today? Elizabethan entertainment. The Globe theatre. 

Introducing Shakespeare's masterpiece - Macbeth

Tuesday: Come you spirits, that tend on mortal thoughts

Introducing some of Shakespeare's famous characters - Comedy, Tragedy, History - poetry and prose. Iambic pentameter? What's that?

Wednesday: Is this a dagger, which I see before me

Song and dance. Let's get physical - learning some cool stage combat moves! Working with masks and puppets

Thursday: Out, damned spot! Out, I say!

Rehearsing our play, working out our entrances and exits, learning our lines, being an ensemble

Friday: Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And the is heard no more

Show day. Putting the final touches on our show. Welcoming our audience. Wowing them with our incredible performances, our verse speaking, our singing and dancing. 

A standing ovation - this is where you come in....!
