On Wednesday 1st November, a cast of 27 Presdales students put on a thrilling 30-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth at Hertford Theatre. The production was directed by English teachers Miss Chapman and Ms Hobbs, with the support of Miss Garrett.
The cast included an array of very talented year 8-11 students, starring Micaela Addison-Kemp (Macbeth), Emily Murphy (Lady Macbeth), Holly Davidge (King Duncan), Maddie Drake (Malcom), Anthe Beston (Macduff), Safi Sipi (Banquo), Evie Moorhead (Lennox) and Seona Colligan (Ross). Special mention should also be given to the three witches, played by Maddie Hunter, Madeline Watson and Emily Patrick, for their spine-tinging performances and superb characterisation of the three weird sisters.
If you did not get a chance to watch the performance, we are delighted to be performing a 15-minute extract of the play during the Creative Showcase on the evening of November 16th.
