Three members of the Bell Shakespeare came to the school for a performance of Words Words Words.

The experience for the Years 7 and 8 students was fantastic.

The Bell Shakespeare vision is to create theatre that allows audiences of all walks of life to see themselves reflected and transformed through the prism of great writing.

The Company believes that Shakespeare’s legacy to successive generations is his firm faith in human potential.

His works still challenge us today.

Lue Fagan of Irrawang High School told News Of The Area, “It was a privilege to have Bell Shakespeare visit our school this morning to perform Words, Words, Words.”

Bell Shakespeare is Australia’s National Theatre Company specialising in Shakespeare and the classics, with their education program delivered to more than 80,000 students and teachers face to face each year.

“Our students were enthralled the moment the play about Macbeth, Juliet and Fool started.

“Well done students on displaying all our PBL values for the entire performance.

Many of the students had previously seen a live Shakespeare play prior to today and even more had seen another live theatre production.

The English Department staff at the school organised this incredible opportunity for the students which was greatly appreciated by those fortunate enough to attend.
