MS Shakespeare (SPRING SEMESTER)

TAUGHT BY

Rebekah Byrd

6th-8th Grade

“Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.”
(Shakespeare expressed this thought through the character of Julius Caesar)
Give me your student for at least one Shakespeare production in their middle school years. This is the perfect time to be valiant. Let them try new, different, and exciting things-- like acting! 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.
