Our students brave enough to perform Shakespeare for contest
Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 in the Jr. High Gym, nine students screwed their courage to the sticking point and performed a Shakespeare monologue as part of a school wide competition, sponsored by the English Speaking Union. Students had to memorize and perform 20 lines of Shakespeare!
The winner of our school competition was Haley Burrus, first runner up was Cole Wilson, and second runner up was Victor Ford. Haley will perform her winning monologue and add one of Shakespeare's sonnets to her repertoire and represent our school at the regional contest in St. Louis on January 31 at the Gaslight Theatre in St. Louis.
