Shakespeare came to Middle Rasen, where parents were treated to a magical performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from these budding young thespians.

And what better location than the school’s own woodland area to enjoy an abridged version of this classic comedy play.

The audience were led through the woods by the narrators, who told the story while the performers acted out the play in mime.

And it was a completely pupil-led production.

As well as the acting roles, they also directed, acted as lighting and sound effects crew, sorted costumes and props and even produced the programmes.

The performance was part of a Shakespeare study week and was all the more remarkable as the children had only been told the day before they were going to be performing.

It was all part of a Shakespeare study week for year 5 and 6 pupils, headed up by teacher Kerry James.

“Once you get past the language, there are some fantastic stories in Shakespeare’s plays,” said Mrs James.

“Everyone really enjoyed it and I hope it is something we can do again in the not too distant future.”
