    On Wednsday, February 27, the Morgan School had a special presentation from two representatives from Shakesperience. They came to show us how actors can bring Shakespeare to life . The Shakesperience performers started off the show with the St. Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V. Many students from the audience volunteered to take part in a scene from some of Shakespeare’s plays. In the presentation, Jadan, Daniel, and Jessica performed a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream as well. The audience learned that not all of Shakespeare’s plays are serious; some are quite comical. For example, Jessica played the part of a wall and Jadan played a woman in distress. Some of the other plays included “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “Macbeth.” This was an enjoyable opportunity for students and teachers to learn more about Shakespeare.

      This article was well written. Not all classes got to enjoy this Shakespear experience, but this article provides enough information to fill them in. Being part of a class that did go, I too enjoyed this performance, as well as this article about it.
