How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank…
Our Year 7 & 8 Enrichment group are working on 15 minute and 4 minute scripts from the Merchant of Venice this term. We are entering the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival at the end of term. Here is an excerpt from the programme:
Venice is a mercantile hub, rife with long-standing racial tension and financial transactions exacting unusual penalties. In peaceful Belmont, we witness the wooing of a fair heiress by casket lottery.
These two worlds collide when the bond is forfeit. A clever disguise and a shrewd argument save the day.
Come along to support our young thespians at Albany Junior High School, Friday 6th April, 6.30pm. Tickets are available at the door.
