Why We Did It

First, we wanted to do Pirates Of The Curry Bean like year 6, but we didn’t have Lisa, pirates, Cod and the Crunchy Frog crew or much time. We discovered that we didn’t need to do the bit that Year 6 did and Aria had the idea of doing a Shakespeare story.

How We Did It  

Aria had watched an 'As You Like It' play on BBC I-player and was inspired, so she got to work with characters, lines, introductions and the finish.

What We Did

We rehearsed and worked really hard, and it was wonderful in the end. Although it was hard work, we were all proud of ourselves.

Did it go well?

Yes! The show was a success! In a few days, we were ready for the performance and it went amazingly well!
