Romeo and Juliet

05 June 2015

Our students are always up for a challenge and this week they showed how well they rise to them by performing the school’s first Shakespeare production in the original text, ‘Romeo and Juliet’.  This is the third collaboration between the English and drama department, aiming to bring to life the plays the students study in English. 

The production explored the themes of the conflict between the generations, and the oppression of women. The cast, from Years 10 and 12, were outstanding with dazzling performances in both year groups.  The relationship between Romeo and Juliet was portrayed touchingly by Bill Nguyen and Riona Carriaga who captured the naivety of the characters effectively. Gin To brought out the comic elements of the nurse’s character to great effect, but  sustained a nuanced performance by also showing a warm mother-daughter relationship between her and Juliet. JK Kazzi’s interpretation of the Friar balanced a fatherly affection for Romeo with  stern disapproval of his rashness.

Whilst these lead roles were prominent, they in no way eclipsed the other characters, who gave strong performances throughout. From the opening chorus roles to the ‘fiery Tybalt’, every member of the cast had developed a strong understanding of the language they were working with and were able to deliver their lines with expression. This has come only as a result of the hours of rehearsals they have put in since September.  It has been a privilege for Ms Sargent and I to work with them and watch them develop their roles and their skills.
