ACTOR Anthony Glenn has been shaking up Shakespeare at Edwinstree School in Buntingford.

Mr Glenn visited the school and performed Romeo and Juliet to a group of Year 7 and Year 8 pupils.

After the performance he led the Year 8 group in a ­Shakespeare workshop.

One of the pupils, Jack Hart, said: "Anthony Glenn's acting was great and he added words to ­provide a sense of comedy, which set the tone for the entire play.

"He also interacted with the audience by getting many pupils to volunteer and participate in the play.

"No one in the audience left the hall without a beaming smile, and I look forward to seeing Mr Glenn's play next year," he said.
