ESU Shakespeare Competition

Congratulations to all who took part in the Internal heat of the English Speaking Union Performing Shakespeare Competition this month.The pupils, from Years 7-9, performed either a monologue or duologue to judges Linda Heaver and Janie Smith. Linda has been the Chairperson of LMS Board of Governors since 2012, and is a great supporter of the Drama Department, as well as having extensive experience of theatre and directing. Janie is a professionally trained actor, who now directs many high-profile productions in Lincoln - most recently, The King And I at The Theatre Royal. The judges were very impressed with both the standard of performance and the pupils' understanding of Shakespearean text.

Going through to the Regional Final are:  

Hannah S - Year 8

Gabriel Q - Year 9

Susie B - Year 8

Sarah R - Year 9

Chloe H and Mackenzie W  - Year 9 

We wish them all the best for the next stage!
