The Globe Theatre Workshop with Lower 4

The TH school community were delighted to welcome actor, Mike Fenner from Globe Education, last week, who led workshops focusing on 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' for the whole of Lower 4. Pupils discussed the Globe theatre itself and elements of Shakespeare's life, before their exploration of plot; the relationships between characters and the audience; and the rich language of the play through engaging drama-focused activities. The girls explored character interactions, between Helena and Demetrius, and were encouraged to use gesture and voice to bring the characters to life. Mike was able to give pupils an exciting insight into the influence of culture and society on the play and performance, which will prove useful to pupils when revisiting Shakespeare in Upper 4 and at GCSE.

The girls were very positive about the visit, enjoying Mike’s charismatic delivery of the workshop. Thanks go to Mrs Wakeling, from the English department, for organising this event.
