400 Years On, Celebrate the Legacy of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon’s Famous Son.
Four hundred and fifty-three years ago today (or thereabouts, nobody is quite sure), William Shakespeare, the greatest playwright who ever lived, was born.
And 400 years ago, he died.
The quad-centenary of The Bard’s passing is an excuse for all manner of fun events. Throughout 2016 Festivals, exhibitions and performances all around the world are celebrating the legacy of William Shakespeare, arguably the finest playwright and poet ever to write in the English language.
Here at Loreto Kirribilli we too are embracing this celebration. Over the past four weekends, thou, thee and prithee! has abounded around the school.
Romeo has been sighted looking up at windows, Lady Macbeth has been scolding Macbeth, Brutus and Cassius were seen whispering on the front drive and Ophelia had a massive fight with Hamlet and now their engagement is off! There was an unsightly brawl by two couples on the tennis courts.
It will all get sorted out by an intrepid group of Year 10 students!
Year 10 Students from Loreto Kirribilli and St Aloysius’ College proudly present…
Everyone is warmly invited to William’s 400th Anniversary Party
‘Bite size’ scenes from some of his most popular plays will be presented.
