Teacher Talk: Shakespeare Comes Alive in Annual 7th Grade Performance

January 14, 2015

DSC_8118-XLEach year, the 7th grade students look forward to the 7th Grade Literature Drama Performance. The classroom is transformed into a Broadway stage complete with lights, curtain, music and fantastic performances. Over the years, students have performed Macbeth, 1930’s & 1940’s classic radio comedy routines (Baby Snooks, Abbott and Costello, and the Marx Brothers), the Creepy Corpse of Cal Capone and many more.

This year, the students presented William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The students had to combine the elements of acting, staging, lighting comedic timing and special effects to bring Shakespeare’s comedy and fantasy alive in our classroom. The seventh graders were very successful in their endeavor.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported their efforts.
