The day started at 7am when we got on the bus to go to Dublin.We were all tired to begin with but gradually woke up as time went on. We arrived in Dundrum early and were allowed to get something to eat or drink before the performance.
We made our way into the auditorium and took our seats. Initially I thought the production was a little unprofessional as there weren’t many props. However, as the play went on I became more impressed with the actors and how they used their props.
I was particularly impressed with how Juliet delivered her soliloquy before drinking the potion. I thought it was full of emotion.
The actors got to show off a lot of their skill such as Mercutio during the fight scene and Capulet when he was angry with Juliet for refusing to marry Paris.
I thought that the play was very good and I really enjoyed it. I also thought that the theatre looked amazing and so did the set. We had a great day out and I really enjoyed seeing the play.

I loved the actor Mercutio because he was really funny. Aaron Lennon
The theatre was smaller than I expected. I thought the stage would be bigger and there would be more seats but it was comfortable. Shauna Marie Monaghan
I think the play was very well done and the actors were very passionate about their parts. My favourite character was Mercutio. The actor was very humourous; his part was crude and most of his speeches were sexual but that is just Mercutio’s character. Sarah Freeman
The play was very good. Mercutio was my favourite character. Rachel Murphy
