Clare Mount features on BBC Radio Merseyside & Shakespeare for Schools Festival website
This year has been full of many different challenges for people, business and schools. The Arts has been hit hard with theatres closing, which is why Clare Mount Specialist Sports College Performing Arts department has strived to keep the performance flame burning bright.
Our school has taken part in the Coram Shakespeare for Schools Festival for many years with huge success and growing recognition. The event ‘One Night of Shakespeare’ takes place in schools tonight Nationwide, with releases of radio plays and one off performances.
This year we were fortunate enough to have been invited to send recordings and photographs of rehearsals to SSF for inclusion in a piece shared on their website this evening at 7pm to kick start proceedings.
BBC Radio Merseyside are impressed with the project and spoke to our Assistant Head and director Miss MacLean this morning on the Tony Snell show. Don’t worry if you missed it! Download the BBC Sounds app and listen again. Miss MacLean features at 8:25am.
Our aim with the project this year is to perform ‘The Winter’s Tale’ as a piece of promenade theatre in our school. We hope to be able to invite a small audience and will keep you updated about that.
So, please make your way to the Coram Shakespeare for Schools Festival to celebrate our pupil’s success so far in rehearsals and their commitment and resilience to making this year’s project work. We want to share with you some photographs and we will keep you updated on our progress.
Cast, a huge well done and keep going. Big thanks to the staff who are collecting costume, building and creating set and props, videoing and photographing.
