A STORM is brewing at a school in Chester.

The King's School's Young Shakespeare Company will perform William Shakespeare's The Tempest as the final drama department production of the academic year.

Student Rose Lindley, 15, of Hockenhull, will follow in Dame Helen Mirren's footsteps as a female Prospero whilst students Devanshi Chengappa, 13, of Tirionfa and George Bell, 13, of Rossett, will take on the roles of young lovers Miranda and Ferdinand.

 

The actors will be performing this as part of the National Shakespeare for Schools’ Festival at The Floral Pavilion Theatre, New Brighton on November 12 but will be showcasing their work so far from July 4-5 in The Vanbrugh Theatre at the school on Wrexham Road.

The shows begin at 7.30pm and run for 45 minutes without an interval. Drinks will be served from 7pm prior to the show.
