Sutton CP School

Y3 & Y4 children whip up a storm on stage!

To celebrate Shakespeare Week, Sutton CP School children from Years 3 & 4 performed the classic Shakespearean comedy, 'The Tempest', at Glusburn Institute on Friday 16th March. Shakespeare week is a national annual celebration of the bard and this musical version of Shakespeare’s classic tale gives the children opportunities for enriching encounters with his work.

In the twisting tale set on an island, following a dramatic shipwreck lives Prospero and his daughter Miranda. But Prospero, a powerful magician, is really the outcast Duke of Milan, and he is plotting revenge on his evil brother…

Also wandering the isle are the rebellious slave Caliban and the loyal sprite Ariel; a group of shipwrecked noblemen; two hilarious bungling servants; handsome Prince Ferdinand; and the Spirits, always ready to sing a song or tell a story, or laugh at the soppy lovers.

Deputy Headteacher Mrs Jill Fletcher said, “It was the best Sutton CP production I have ever seen! The audience was wowed by the confident acting and strong singing. The entire cast should be very proud of their outstanding performance.”

Thanks to children, staff and parents for the fantastic show!
