Performing Arts and Drama students attend a Macbeth workshop at The Globe

Posted on

Performing Arts Level 3 and A level Drama students have just attended a Macbeth workshop at the Globe.

The students had a tour of the space with a lecture and then access to the Exhibition before watching the performance.

Afterwards,  they spotted Joseph Millson, who plays Macbeth outside a coffee shop and went to talk to him.  He kindly offered to have a picture taken with them all.  The cast also included Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd, who played Banquo.

Alex Spooner, Performing Arts Level 3 student says: “Overall a great experience especially as we were
standing  so close to the actors we could actually see the blood dripping from their bodies!”

Kate Gardner, also on the Level 3 course adds: “I loved the way they included the audience – I felt being a ‘pleb’ was a great experience.”

Wendy Frost, Performing Arts Level 3 Diploma course team leader comments: “The students really enjoyed the production.  It was exciting, dynamic and very easily accessible.  The acting was outstanding and one of the best pieces of Shakespeare I have seen.”
