Graham was made aware of the production by the Shakespeare Schools Foundation who informed him of the excellent work they do to promote the Bard’s plays.
“I was so pleased to hear Beverley High School students are taking part in the Shakespeare Schools Foundation’s ‘Schools Festival 2018’ and performing one of his most famous plays Much Ado About Nothing“.
“Performances like this are an excellent way to help young people build their confidence and grow as people. After nearly 500 years Shakespeare’s works are still teaching people of all ages valuable life lessons.
“I have written to the head of the department and the students to wish them the best of luck for their performance and to ask if I may attend a rehearsal one Friday so I can see the students’ hard work coming to fruition.”
“I want to encourage as many people as possible to go and watch the performance on the 7th November at Beverley High School, I am sure the students and teachers will not disappoint”.
The Shakespeare Schools Foundation gives young people the opportunity to help express themselves and build their confidence through acting.
Their flagship festival, which runs from now until 30th November, will unite nearly 900 schools and up to 30,000 young people to perform Shakespeare’s plays.
