BUDDING actors at an East End school will be gearing up to take on Shakespeare tonight for their second performance of Romeo and Juliet.

Pupils at Raine's Foundation in Approach Road in Bethnal Green have been rehearsing for more than six hours week to prepare for their production of the tragic love story.

Last night was their opening night but the actors from Year 7 to Year 12 will be returning to the stage again tonight.

And those behind the scenes will also be eager to show off their creations with Graphics and Art students helping to create the set as well as designing posters and programs.
