SUIS Hongqiao’s 2018 Production of Romeo and Juliet is an
“in the round” experience brought to you by a mix of Grade 4
and Grade 5 students. Students will not only be acting in this
retelling of Shakespeare’s classic love story they will also be
taking responsibility for their own scene changes and transitions.
Usually not performed by students as young as ours,
Shakespeare’s language is often exalted on a pedestal as being
highbrow and too difficult for students to learn and understand.
It has been my aim with this
performance to debunk these
myths surrounding the bard and
try to show that these verses are
as accessible today as they were
400 years ago.
On behalf of the student
performers and the teachers who

students tell you a story from
