A DRUM, A DRUM! MACBETH DOTH COME.
Posted on 13th October 2016 | News
Year 10 pupils from St. Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt enjoyed a performance of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the school on Wednesday 12 October 2016.
C21, a Northern Ireland based theatre company, brought its touring production of “the Scottish play” to St. Mary’s before it moves on next week to finish its run in the Grand Opera House, Belfast.
Following the performance, pupils took part in a short Q+A session with members of the cast and crew who answered questions about their career training and experience, as well as discussing the value of studying drama at GCSE level and beyond.
Debra Hill, who played the role of Lady MacDuff, explained: “The moment employers realise that you have a background in drama, they become very interested in you because they know that you can offer a range of highly sought after skills, including communication, confidence, teamwork and leadership.”
