‘The Globe Players have brought Romeo and Juliet to life for our students. We love their lively and playful performances. It’s fantastic how they manage to pack so much into a one hour performance – including sonnet structure and figurative language. All of our students were rapt – giggling at the right times and vastly engaged by the romantic chemistry between Romeo and Juliet. We have found the Globe Players to be professional, flexible and affordable as an organization. Thank you for an excellent event. Highly recommended!’ Buller’s Wood School
