Shakespeare day is dedicated to the reenactment of Shakespeare’s famous plays. The plays that were reenacted included Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Taming of the Shrew, and Othello. The scenes ranged from tragic to comedic. Each scene lasted 5-10 minutes and English classes were able to attend. The talented theater class also performed a 15 minute Romeo and Juliet skit, which was very comedic, but unfortunately was cut short. However, it was resumed Tuesday morning during first hour; several English classes attended that special performance. Shakespeare day is a great way for theater students to show their talents and appreciate the arts. Students also get to appreciate history and the time their peers put into their scenes. It is not easy performing in front of the school, but with a supportive crowd performers were able to become the characters and keep Shakespeare’s legacy alive.
