Students from Caistor Yarborough Academy took the Bard into the ring with their production of A Comedy of Errors.

The Year 11 Performing Arts students took part in a Shakespeare Festival at Lincoln’s Drill Hall, where they performed alongside two primary schools and a 
specialist school.

It was the students’ second performance as part of their Btec performing arts course and they chose to set the Shakespearian play in a circus, which looked at the fun side of the circus, but also touched on the darker side too.

“The students were amazing, I am so proud of them all,” said drama teacher Heather Bagot.

“It was the best performance they have done, probably the best in two years. They were all very supportive of each other and worked well as a team. They also got a lot out of working with the primary and specialist school as I think it gave them a real boost and understanding for performing arts.

“From rehearsals to end, the cast worked professionally and this was noticed by the theatre crew who commented on how we have taken such a difficult script and turned it into something completely new.”
