Students visit Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
24 March 2017
Cadbury College's second year Drama students are currently studying 'The Taming of the Shrew' by William Shakespeare as part of their course.
Earlier this month, the students visited Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London to watch the play for themselves. The production was a contemporary adaptation of the Elizabethan play, and made use of the unique theatrical design of the Globe, a replica of the original theatre of 1599.
Following their first-hand experience of the play, the students are now analysing the director's interpretation, the acting techniques and the design elements including the set, the props and the costumes. This analysis aims to help them gain a wider understanding of the play, providing them with useful skills and techniques to portray in their own acting and coursework pieces.
