Friends and families gathered at Kindlehill on Friday and Saturday last week to experience Romeo and Juliet, performed by class 7-8, Produced and Directed by Georgia Adamson and Rowley Holmes.
It was wonderful to see the students grasp the emotion behind the complex lines, and that the younger children in the audience understood the story completely. The blend of simple yet striking costumes, graceful choreography, mixed with interludes of ukulele, drums, flute and vocals, made the performance dynamic and enthralling from beginning to end.
Each student embraced their role with ease and confidence. The audience, although familiar with the storyline, held their breath in anticipation for the dramatic ending.
