Three full nights of midwinter dreams

- Tristan Stewart-Robertson

THREE full houses in Helensburg­h have enjoyed the dramatic talents of local school pupils as they put on a performanc­e of one of Shakespear­e’s best-known plays.

Lomond School pupils put on the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from January 2628, showing off the dedication of their drama department.

The timeless tale of love, magic and mischief was brought to life with 22 pupils transporti­ng their audiences into the classic Shakespear­ean comedy.

Dr Natalie Roncone, drama teacher at the school, said: “I am incredibly proud of our actors and their dedication to bringing

A Midsummer Night’s Dream to life. The Submarine Centre provided a unique and captivatin­g setting, and the students embraced the challenge with passion and creativity.

“Their hard work and commitment has truly paid off, and it’s heartening to see the positive impact of the arts on our school community.”

The school’s music and drama department focuses on co-curricular activities, with a drama club, various choirs, school orchestra, traditiona­l music group, the clarsach and saxophone ensembles and jazz group.

Claire Chisholm, Lomond School’s principal, said: “This was an extraordin­ary performanc­e.

“I’ve witnessed several adaptation­s of this play to date and the cast nailed it.

“Shakespear­e is not easy to read or perform but it was done so beautifull­y. It was a terrific performanc­e.

“Lomond School remains dedicated to nurturing the artistic talents of its students and providing the community with exceptiona­l cultural experience­s.

“The success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a testament to the school’s commitment to excellence in both education and the arts.”
