Jubilee Fête "Much Ado About Nothing" given by the School Dramatic Society.
.. Of an equally enjoyable, though very different character, was the School play, Shakespeare's "Much Ado about Nothing." Again under the capable direction of Miss Brook, and with the main characters played by girls who had had precious experience in School Plays, the witty love-making of Benedict and Beatrice; the nearly tragic misjudgement of Hero; the unscrupulous behavious of Don John; and the broad humour of Dogberry and the Watch were made to live for us.
