On Friday 28th November a number of Junior Certificate higher level English students set off to the theatre. Romeo and Juliet, a production by the Gaiety theatre, was preformed in St. John’s, Listowel. The play was brought to life by a young, energetic cast. For many students this was their first experience of a live stage performance and hopefully it won’t be their last!
