For the first time, Moreton Hall hosted the regional final of the prestigious English-Speaking Union’s Performing Shakespeare Competition.
The school welcomed students from across the North West: Manchester High School, Denstone College Staffordshire, Loreto Grammar School Cheshire, Altrincham Grammar School, but Moreton’s home-grown talent prevailed with year 9 student Georgia Thomas being awarded first place. Georgia will now go on to act on a West End stage in London.
Drama teacher Michael Jenkins said: “This competition provides a fantastic opportunity for our students to showcase their talents and their love of performing in front of a live audience. It’s been thoroughly enjoyable preparing the students for their performances. They have developed in each coaching session and I’m extremely proud of Georgia.”
