Year 9 & 10 students watch ‘Twelfth Night’ at the Bolton Octagon Theatre
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
On Tuesday 18th March, 43 Year 9, Year 10 students and 4 staff piled aboard a coach bound for the Bolton Octagon, ready for the night of mayhem and fun promised by the David Thacker production of ‘Twelfth Night’.
It didn’t disappoint! Students were moved by Viola’s sadness for her brother’s death, impressed by Orsino’s skill on the piano and laughed along with the clowning of Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Sir Toby Belch, Feste and Maria.
An extra bonus the next day came in the form of an email from a volunteer at the theatre, who wrote, that our pupils reaction to the play was, “enjoyable and infectious’ and that they had, ‘never met such a nice bunch of people in a large group.’
