'Once in a lifetime chance' for pupils on hallowed stage
PUPILS from two Weston-super-Mare schools have been invited to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford.
Pupils from Hutton C of E Primary School and Broadoak College were invited to take part in a production of The Poor Trash of Venice, based on The Merchant of Venice, after impressing members of the Royal Shakespeare Company in a regional festival. More than 600 people attended the festival, to see performances by seven schools.
Broadoak College is one of ten 'hub' schools from across England to stage Shakespeare festivals this year, working with six local primary schools, as part of an RSC education programme.
The two schools, who performed scenes from The Merchant of Venice at the festival, will take to the stage in Stratford-upon-Avon on Tuesday and will work alongside two professional Shakespearean actors.

Broadoak College head teacher Shelagh Pritchard said the performance would be a "once in a lifetime opportunity".
She said: "I am so proud of how our teaching team have risen to this challenge and especially how well our students, and those from Hutton Primary, have done to participate in this national event."
