SIR - Friday February 27, 2009, was a day which will remain in the memory of many parents, staff and friends of the children who put on a dramatic show based on Shakespeare's play The Tempest, at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe.This was performed by West Down School as a musical, written by Nick Perrin and Ruth Kenward (of Starshine Music), and is a brilliant introduction to Shakespeare (written in contemporary English) for children in the age group 8-12 years.The production was helped and filmed by Ilfracombe College and it was great to see the school, college and theatre working together to show what can be done for the enjoyment and good of Ilfracombe.Well done! I enjoyed every minute of it as, no doubt, did everyone else!West Down School children are to be congratulated on an excellent evening's entertainment.S M Nutton,North Devon.
