Canons High School

'As You Like It'

performed by Canons High students at the Coram Shakespeare Schools Festival.

On 1st March, 425 years after the pastoral comedy play 'As You Like It' was written by William Shakespeare, our young actors performed an incredible live abridged adaptation on stage at the multi-award winning cultural hub in North Finchley.

A great achievement from our students, as this performance demanded a huge amount of time, dedication and effort.

Well done to: Nikisha R. 7R,  Flavian O. 7Y,  Josephine O. W. 8B,  Rabaab A. 8I,  Timeea L. 8V,  Miriam O. 8B,  Alex P.l 8I,  Jazmya H. 8I,  Sonia D. E O. 8V,  Andrea H. 9G,  Perikles K.u 10B,  Lily D.10B,  Aida P. 10G,  Diana G. 11Y,  Andreea C. 12G & Eirene H. 13B.

Huge thanks to Ms K Emmerson from our English Department (a self confessed Shakespeare Nut), for passionately organising this great opportunity for our young actors, taking them under her wing, showing them how to spread their wings and supporting them every inch of the way.


"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts"
(Act 2, Scene 7).
