Macbeth

Wednesday 15th December we staged our annual Shakespeare performance. This year, it was the mother of all spooks, Macbeth. And what a performance it turned out to be! Niall excelled as Macbeth, Kaia rose to previously undiscovered heights as his wife, and Claudia, Ahmed and Jessica proved their lead roles in last year’s School of Rock and Hard to Swallow were not one hit wonders. They were all ably supported by a mixture of old and new students, including a debut from Lewis as young Squire, in his first of many roles at Allerton Grange.

The audience were left spell-bound, not just by the witches, but every aspect of the show. Members of the audience were heard to comment that it was better than professional productions.

Under the directorship of Olivia and Mr Hasselgreen, this was arguably the strongest Shakespearean tragedy ever performed at Allerton Grange, affirming the school’s Drama team as the most productive Drama department in Leeds. With rehearsals well under way for this year’s lower school production of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe and auditions for Blood Brothers just round the corner, it is going to be another busy year for all the teachers and students of Drama at the school.
