Taking a bow for the Bard at Dowdales

TWO hundred talented pupils took to the stage to celebrate the works of William Shakespeare.

Furness primary and secondary children performed scenes from the Bard’s great romantic comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, during Dowdales School’s Shakespeare Festival.

Teachers and pupils worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the weeks before the performances on March 23.

The Dalton secondary school hosted the drama events, which included Dowdales students and pupils from Thorncliffe, Parkview, St Bernard’s Catholic High, Dalton St Mary’s CE Primary, Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary, Ireleth St Peter’s CE Primary and Askam Village School.

The following day Dowdales students staged extracts from Shakespeare’s classic comedies, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Taming of the Shrew.

Dowdales’ Shakespeare Festival supports the RSC’s Stand Up For Shakespeare campaign which aims to ensure young people have a positive experience of Shakespeare in schools.

One school group from the Furness festival will get the chance to attend the RSC’s schools celebration at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon this June.
