HS Shakespeare (SPRING SEMESTER)

TAUGHT BY

Rebekah Byrd

9th-12th

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts...”
(Shakespeare spoke these words through the character, Jacques, in As You Like It)
Whether you are new to Shakespeare or have performed several Shakespeare productions, there is always an interesting, vibrant, new character for you to portray. The title of our 2021-22 production will be announced in late spring. Auditions will be in the fall of 2021 with a few rehearsals on Saturdays. Regular rehearsals will begin in January of 2022. Production will take place in late April/early May of 2022.
