Richard Challoner School joined in national celebrations recently, to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, with a magnificent production of ‘The Comedy of Errors’ at the Rose Theatre in Kingston.
The Comedy of Errors was one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and this fast paced Elizabethan situation comedy – which involves two sets of identical twins – was played to a large and enthusiastic audience on June 29th. The cast included Drama students from Years 8, 9 and 10 with Year 10 students Matthew Fuller and Ciaran Inns playing the Dromio twins and Andrew Emmett and Callum James playing the Antipholus twins.
This was the school’s second visit to the Rose Theatre and the play, directed by Neil Zoladkiewicz, was his fifth production of the play during his long career at the school. Several members of past productions were in the audience to see how the new cast fared and the audience were not disappointed – laughter swept through the auditorium and the show went down a storm, winning rave reviews.
