Shakespeare in Thurrock: Is this Woodside Academy I see before me?

macbethON Thursday 7Th November pupils at Woodside Academy are performing at the Thameside Theatre Grays as part of the Shakespeare School’s Festival.

The nationwide festival gives young people the opportunity to work with professionals in the arts and perform live theatre. Woodside has two classes in year 5 taking part performing an african themed Macbeth and a modern day Romeo and Juliet.
