PUPILS at Roysia School in Royston put a new spin on Shakespeare's play The Tempest through the help of a professional actor.
Anthony Glen spent the week working with the Year 8 pupils on an adaptation of the play which mixed modern language and the original script.
They held a dress rehearsal in front of the school on Friday before a performance for parents in the evening.
Mr Glen said: "The children have taken the play from scratch and made up their own adaptation.
