On Thursday 7th October, we embarked upon the first official AMSI school trip since the start of the pandemic!
Around 60 enthusiastic Year 8 students – accompanied by 7 members of staff – travelled to the Globe Theatre in Southwark to watch Shakespeare’s infamous A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Our students were exuberant when the Hackney Colliery Band, performing a brass instrumental, took centre stage in the opening of the play. The theatrical performance that followed was truly outstanding. Lucky enough to have standing seats in the ‘yard’ at stage-level, our students found themselves right in the heart of the action. The A Midsummer Night’s Dream Shakespeare Company comprised a diverse, talented, inspirational cast who created a genuine buzz amongst our students. The acting and costumes had us in stitches as the plot journeyed through its various twists and turns.
My Oberon! what visions have I seen!
Thank you to all the students and staff who attended for a fun day out – and a very welcome return to normality!
