My Verona!

27 November 2017

 

For their school production this year, senior boys at Caldicott embraced both Shakespeare and music from the 1980s as they performed “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” on two nights at the end of November.

The play tells the story of friendship, betrayal, love and identity against the backdrop of the decadent court of the Duke of Milan.  This classic Shakespeare tale was also given a 1980s twist with the boys performing songs from the decade including "My Sharona" by The Knack, "We Built This City" by Starship and "With or Without You" by U2.

The upbeat and exciting performance gave the boys the opportunity to display their acting, singing and dancing skills to their families and friends.  All the boys gave it their all and had great fun performing.  The talented backstage crew also played their part providing wonderful costumes, sets, lighting and musical accompaniment.

After weeks of hard work from everyone involved, “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” was a success and all the boys should be extremely proud of themselves.
