Shakespeare Modernized for Festival

February 11, 2019

 

 

 

As a culminating event to celebrate the end of their study on William Shakespeare, 5th grade CLUE students at Grahamwood Elementary wrote and performed their own modern versions of classic Shakespeare tragedies. With the help of CLUE teachers, Sherry Coates, Shannon McOlgan and Laura Wilons, students re-imagined scenes from Shakespeare’s most famous works and performed them for parents, community members, and fellow students. The production included versions of Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Hamlet. Sam Nied, who acted in Macbeth said, “It was cool being someone I am not in real life. It made me act different and use my imagination.” A grand time was had by all!
