Pupils from a March school trod the boards as part of a youth drama festival performing one of Shakespeare’s favourite comedies ‘Much Ado About Nothing’.
Children from Yrs 4 and 5 at All Saints Academy became part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival - which is the UK’s largest youth drama festival, who work with over 1,000 schools and 150 professional theatres across the country.
The children performed ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ at the Key Theatre in Peterborough in front of a very appreciative paying audience.
This professional opportunity was organised and supported by Shakespeare for Schools, a charity which promotes the performance of Shakespeare’s plays by school children.
Holly Baumber, assistant head, said: “The fact that these children are so young and yet still performing at this level simply indicates how dedicated the children were to being successful. It was a thrilling experience.

“This success means that the school will continue their association with the charity and are already considering which play they will perform next November.”
