The Grade 7's attended the Alexander Road High School Production, Romeo and Juliet, on Monday, 7 May. Because this romantic tragedy was written by William Shakespeare in the 1500’s, the language was very different to how we speak today. The passion with which the cast spoke and acted made this seem somewhat irrelevant as the Grade 7's were still able to follow the plot and get fully involved in the play. The highlights of the play were: seeing past Hurdians on the stage (Luzuko Mavela, Rachel Lategan, Megan Wait, Liyema Ntini, Nathan van As, Amy Bright and Sambesiwe Ndondo), watching Shakespeare for the first time, having a motorbike ride onto the stage and the action scenes. It was, of course, a love story which the romantics in the audience enjoyed too. Well done to Alex and the past Hurdians who did the school proud, both on the stage and behind the scenes.
