Care Respect Inspire

Manacto Theatre Company

Pupils in years 7 and 11 have been lucky enough to see performances of texts that they are studying.

The Manacto Theatre Company visited Pensby to perform Macbeth and An Inspector Calls in front of the whole of year 11. Both of these texts are being studied at GCSE level and so pupils were thrilled to be able to see the plays performed live. One year 11 pupil said: ‘I understand the plot of these plays so much more now that I have seen them on the stage.’

Year 7 enjoyed the performance of Romeo and Juliet. They asked the actors lots of questions after the performance – they were keen to hear how they had come to be actors. They were also interested in the relationship between the two tragic lovers!

All of the pupils were fantastic as an audience and this was fed back to the school from the company.
